Has to be a misprint of "Treasurer"? Is this the ad that started it all? Has Bob found the 'smoking gun'?

I didn't know where else to put this, so put it here.

There has been a lot of debate about this, so I'll keep it short and to the point.

Below is a Sears ad from 1949 for the Treasure, debunked by some, and called a typo or misprint.

There is a Crystal packet to back it up, CMX345-2F.

Below is a 1951 ad from NY.

Gotta be real.

Another ACADEMY AWARD ad from 1953 Cedar Rapids Gazette, January 18th.

I have the full pdf & jpeg page with date at top, should anyone query the legitimacy of the ad.

With the one Will found in a NY paper, surely proof that they were still being advertised and sold under the AA name post 1952?
