I am looking for a one-page ad I saw in a National Geographic that was delivered in Brazil in February 1975. I always remember it as being in an October 1974 issue, as delivery by boat mail was…Continue

For which issue are you looking? Date? Topic?
Yes, I am still on the lookout for the specific ad I described. (George) Thomas found a related ad in the Feb75 issue, as above, HOWEVER, when I ordered that issue from NatGeo, this is the cover and the ad on the inside back cover. This confirms what I've concluded: the same issue was sent out with a variety of advertising contents. The ad above is obviously part of the same advertising campaign, but with a completely different graphic layout. I ordered all the back issues from Jun74 to Feb75 and none of them had the ad I'm looking for, nor the one that George sent. I am keenly interested in acquiring an issue with the ad I saw in Feb75. Unfortunately, I don't know what issue it was in, but it had to be within that window of fall 1974 or Jan-Feb 1975.
After getting the Feb74 issue with a totally different ad, I gave up and resolved to be content with the "sister" ad. You mention selling your collection...you wouldn't "happen" to have what I'm looking for, would you?
