Marlin Razor Blades

In 1944 or 45 the Marlin razor blade division ran a campaign based on "foxhole" radios, a sort of crystal set using a Marlin blade as a detector, built by soldiers at Anzio. Marlin sent promotional materials to their dealers, including this picture of a store window display. I've been looking for a copy of this picture for many years (this one is scanned from Brophy's Marlin book) or any material at all from the campaign. If anyone has run into anything like this (any related material or the picture) I would love to know. A scan of the picture would work if you have one in your collection that you don’t want to part with. I’ve been looking for material from this campaign for 8 years so if you see something a year from now, more than likely I’m still looking for it!
