Thanks to another member for letting me add this folder to my collection.

I have not seen one of these green folders before. Has anyone else?

Another interesting tidbit based on the shop stamp on the front cover:

P. VON FRANTZIUS
608 DIVERSEY PARKWAY
CHICAGO ILLINOIS

"Peter von Frantzius was a Chicago businessman and arms dealer to the Chicago underworld during Prohibition, later dubbed by the press as "The Armorer of Gangland". An almost exclusive supplier of the Chicago Outfit (although often selling to rival gangs such as the North Side Mob), he was one of the first to supply "Tommy" submachine guns and other specialized weaponry connected to countless gangland slayings during the bootleg wars of the 1920s, including the murder of Brooklyn mobster Frankie Yale in 1928, the St. Valentine's Day Massacre in 1929 and the 1930 gangland murder of Chicago journalist Jake Lingle."

Also, the hunter in the woods graphic shown on the cover, is the same illustration shown on page 11 of the 'How to Buy a Gun' booklet.

That is a great little folder, with links back to the 1917 magazine ads (right) and the 1927 folder of the A.H. Fox Gun Co. (left).
