Deconstructing Old Ads: The First Jamison Coaxer Ad?

First Jamison Coaxer ad?
It is always exciting to me to see what I believe is the earliest ad for a well know tackle maker. In checking with the most experienced  Jamison collector I know (Joe Nelson), I believe this might qualify. The first picture and write up shown here appeared in the March 1905 National Sportsman. The last ad appeared in the June issue and several subsequent issues. Now just about the time that you think you have something like this nailed down, some one will show up with an earlier ad. Bring it on, we would love to see it!
