Yeah, the dentist and I had a long meeting today, so since I couldn't do any heavy work (cough cough like I need an excuse) I thought I would post up some of the more interesting recent acquisitions.

Close but no cigar.  On the verticle sides, there is a break in the enamel.  In the ad, there doesn't appear to be a matching break. 

The case shape is similar though.

Look at image 9,12,13 and 15. 15 shows clearest (look near crown) but I think they all show the break in the enamel, just not clearly...The Roberta is the only case shaped this way in any ad from the era. Unfortunately none are clear enough to show the detail well...

Well, your eyes must be sharper than mine, but I will accept that.  I agree that the cases are the same so the name is changed to Roberta.

Appears to be the "Dianne" to me also.
