This trade circular came from the Millers Falls catalog #49, printed in 1949. The insert was added at a late stage to advertise the MF planes 709 and 714, which weren’t added to the catalog until the next iteration of catalog 49 circa 1952. Incidentally, the planes had a list price of $8.50 and $9.00 respectively in the price sheet that accompanied the catalog.The real price of $8.50 is $81.00 in 2013 terms.

If anyone would like a super high resolution image of this poster, please let me know.

Yeah, the planes are cool. I notice a near pristine No.709 (with box) on ebay… selling for US$326! For a while there, ebay had quite a few for sale reasonably cheap.
