Last page before the back cover to the February 1975 issue.

Are you still looking for this?

Hi Austyn

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 wouldn't "happen" to have what I'm looking for, would you?
