Friden 130 Ad - Russian Envy

This (clearly staged) ad speaks to a visiting Russian technical deligation's interest in a Friden 130 calculator they stumbled across into while visiting an architectural firm in the US. This ad appeared on the rear cover of the April, 1967 Friden News company magazine.

One wonders if this visit could have led to the Soviet's nearly identical own version of the Friden 130, the Felix CE-30, made in Romania.
