Hi Everyone,

I know that we have seen this one before a couple of times.  One of these days we will finally get an ID on it.

Even with all the new readable ads this one hasn't showed up yet. I found a six-sided look-a-like that I did a double take on, but it is an unknown also. Maybe next year.

Morris Jeweler's ad in a Pennsylvania newspaper from November 26, 1939.  The full ad has been sent in for addition to the database.  Here is a snippet for The Winston. Click for full ad.

It had been an unknown model up till early October.  We had discussed resubmission as unknown for review by panel members vs. just changing to the newly found model name.  It was quicker/easier to change these unknowns to the new name and allow members to assign ticks.  Had this previously been ID'ed as a tentative model (vs unknown), then it would make sense to resubmit for review, as there could be some contention.  So going directly from an unknown to a newly found model name, in this instance, was easiest and gave the same end results.
