    Well, we will give a clue delimiting the area; what may be unusual or striking is in this part of the poster

    It "holds 102% more ink" than .... what? Typical advertising puffery that avoids being pinned down to truth.

    I think the ad is wrapped in plastic and is suffocating.

    It has radius corners. Could it be an ink blotter? Could it be a mouse pad manufactured half a century before mice needed pads?

    Another clue; try to find others Parker´s vacumatic ads, catalogs or drawings from the vacumatic era where the cap is separated from the barrel.

    The images shown are very early images produced by Parker and were rejected.

    They thought the pen looked better with cap on the barrel.


    Nice mouse mats, can I buy one.


    Still smiling.

    It might be pertinent to disclose the date and where the ad was published.

    It would appear that chap has had extraordinary access to some very rare early Parker Janesville archive files.

    Outside my area.


    Have asked a few others who should know - none have ever seen the ' Perils of Pamela Penn ' booklet before.

    What about this other, back cover of Saturday Evening Post on February 08, 1930?
