Substitute for the PACEX Catalog

This is the Pacific Mail-Order System catalog from March of 1970. With the near non-availability of the official "Pacex" catalog from the exchange system, plus the fact that Pacex only offered a minimal selection, this was THE catalog of choice for getting cameras from Hong Kong. Better yet, Pacific Mail-Order had an operation in Guam with an APO address. This meant you could not only legally send a U.S. Money Order to them, but also get your equipment quickly without a Customs inspection. This, of course, assumed your stuff didn't "disappear" in the Division or Brigade mail rooms (I had friends there and they all seemed to have top-of-the-line camera and stereo gear in their hooches).
