Can someone help me determine if this brochure is original or reproduction?
Also, approximate value?
It came with a Victor M that I purchased years ago.
Thank you for any help that can be offered.

Gene

My post wont be of much help, but I always give things like these a smell test. Really old stuff has "that smell". Newer stuff that was fake aged (chemically) has a vinegar smell and newer paper smells like, well paper :mrgreen:

Reproduction, and from the 1960's-1970's before computer scanning and printing made everything easy. . BRIGHT white paper and the covers are black and white. I have never seen an original but I'd bet you the original had a multicolor cover. They wanted to catch your eye.

I think Estott nailedmit. It looks like one I bought back in the late seventies or eighties. So it's only worth a few dollars but it has great content. Jerry

Has anyone ever seen a horn like the one pictured on the rigid arm MS? I have seen this horn on other Victor ads.

In forty plus years of collecting I have not seen a horn like that. I've always thought it was an artist's embellishment. Jerry Blais
