Doesn't get out much does he Greg?

Mark - hard to give you two here....but I think I will. It's the extra engraving that's holding me back, as well as the length of the side engraving relative to the size of the crown.

'You picked a fine time to leave me Lucille......."

'Four hungry Children and crops in the Field',

I think those issues are artistic in nature Geoff.

Two proposiitions: This thread is a case in point, hence this post here rahter than in a forum.

It's a little difficult for someone like me, who is not that familiar w/ all ads in the database, to recogzice/remember the ad date if that informations is not posted w/ the ad.

1. When we post ads or crops of ads, can we preface them with a short title stating the ad date?

I had assumed the first ad above (now changed and cropped for closer view) was in the ad database.  I assumed it was a 1928'ish ad.  I searched all 1927 through 1929 ads, and did not find this ad. Later in the post, the ad date is given, so I was able to go to that date, however now it looks like that "crop of an ad" is not in the database for 1926 either?  I may have missed it, but I don't think I did. 

If this is true, for me, this begs yet another question: why are there ads placed in forums/records which are not in the database at all?  I feel the answer to "why" is less important than proposing a possible solution for what I precieve as a "problem".  I  know this takes time, however the ads are already in digital format. 

2. Can (should) we make every reasonable effort to provide ads which are used in posts/forums/records, but are not in the ad database, to admin so they can be included in ad database? 

This way we all have the same information available from the start- not during or after the fact.  Answers or comments may be better addressed in a seperat forum post than within this thread, or the above  may be taken as rhetorical, since i though this was  kind of a "given" already.

Its also in 1927 ad #27, but good point Will, if we give the year and ad number it will make searching for it much easier.

Yep Fifth- your right- ad date was right in the comments field from the go-get, and I missed it.  It was also in the ad database, and I missed it too.   I think I had some issues with this in other posts and carried those here before looking closly, and in this case, I was incorrect inferring  this post as part of "a precieved problem".    We do usually follow protocol.

The ad's are from '26-'27, just maybe in '28 they decided to "update" the look slightly??

Could it be the Luella, although I just noticed the lack of top and bottom engravings in the advert similar to the Lucille.
