I've got a 1936 Auto-Ordnance Corp. catalog in near mint condition...30 pages, paperback, produced by Charles A Nixon Organization. Lists all Thompson models, spare parts, magazines, etc. ("Type L 50-cartridge capacity drum magazine....$21.00")

Am interested to know it's value and am willing to sell. Any ideas?

It depends on if it is an original or a reprint. Post a picture if you can. There were apparently several reprints over the years and a picture might help some on this board identifiy your catalogue.

Do a search on this board, and you will find an in-depth discussion that took place about a month and a half ago. I posted several pictures you can compare it to in that thread. I will make you an offer on it if is an original. I must see a picture of at least the cover to determine originality.

Thanks for the replies...will post a few pictures this weekend. No reason to believe its a reprint...no extraneous markings, etc, aged about right...but I'm not an expert! Thanks again and will post this weekend...

After examining the pictures I believe I may have a "repro" as it is not in color on the cover...simple black ink. The cover paper is ribbed and of good quility but looks just like the "fake" in the earler thread. Ahhh well...

Look farther down in the subsequent posts regarding the ribbed pale yellow cover version of the 1936 catalog. There is reason to believe this may have been a subsequent printing to the originals and may be a desireable early version also. No one has yet determined just when the variation you have was printed. It is not as common an the green covered version, so post the pictures anyway and let us view the edition you have.
