I think someone at Smith Hardware spent a whole day stamping those! I have not even seen one without the stamp!

Thanks Jason and Eric. I google mapped 600 Gratiot Ave. Only one came up - downtown Detroit near the ballpark. No hardware store there, only what looks like a construction trailer.

The most interesting thing is how often that picture of Mike Stackhouse was used in advertising back in the day --

In the Peters and Miller ads the gun he is holding is obviously a Parker.

One more thing, what is with the "FOX -- Faithful for fifty years!"? The Ansley H. Fox shotgun had only been in production about 27 years when the folder first came out. Ansley H. Fox himself was about 56 at the time.

I live in MI and picked up a hand full of the blue tri-fold Sterly pamphlets with the Smith Hardware Stamp as well as several of the Savage 99 Orange & Black tri-folds with the same Smith Hardware stamp on them. That address was pretty much smack dab downtown Detroit.
