This Jack Taylor trailer bike is the best I have ever used. It included forks and a front wheel to make a separate bike.

This bike will be a collectors item in USA.
You could try contacting RUSA.
Randoneurs U S A a sister organisation to our AUDAX UK where, as here in UK there will be savvy old vets .
Possibly that would open up links.
I don't know if Americans have CTC?
Maybe the Society of American Wheel men.
I seem to remember someone telling me of a Jack Taylor club in states.
Whatever happens don't take first offer for this heirloom.

It's the League of American Bicyclists (formerly League of American Wheelmen)

It's a lovely looking bike, but I'm not convinced that it will be worth enough more in the USA to make it worth the shipping cost.

Hilary Stone.com has a similar Jack Taylor ladies bike priced at £ 875.

hilarystone.com has a custom built Jack Taylor ladies' bike in excellent & rideable condition, which is a little different that what the OP is asking about.

Yes, I'm not sure the box lining is much help in narrowing down the date. My JT Clubman frame, bought from the brothers in 1975, has box lining and decals more or less identical to the OP's bike. As others have said, the box lining was retained right to the end, at least if you asked for it (I didn't - it came as standard with mine).
