Original advertisements, including firearms ads, have become very collectible. I have a couple of original Colt Peacemaker ads for framing. Does anyone know of a source for Thompson ads? I'd like to get a copy of the terrific ad reproduced on the back of Helmer's book (The Gun that Made the Twenties Roar). If no originals are still around, I'd settle for a high quality repo. That ad has to be one of the most unusual Thompson ads ever, and the terrain depicted reminds me of the area where I live. Thanks to everyone for the help.

I found a high quality reproduction on e-bay for $20. That's the only one I've ever seen. I'm sure that there are probably a few originals around. They would be highly sought after and expensive.

Thanks, Jack. I've checked Ebay often and I'll continue to do so.
