Curta as a giveaway

Some rare Curtas are around which are used by different companies as a giveaway...

Maybe you have seen the Quick Curta (late Type I - Quick was German illustrated magazine) or this one:


[ COMPLIMENTS - GAYNOR & CO - no "CURTA" engraved on the canister ... ]

Based on my knowledge (information from the seller and from "The CURTA Collectors and Registry Page") Gaynor & Co was company related to the petroleum industry (around 1957)
- any more information?

- other samples of Curtas used as a giveaway?

Well I'm checking the public offers from time to time - this was published first at EB, was able to buy it directly from seller.

Gaynor & Co., Inc. could also have been a PR / advertising agency in New York. There are some hints around year 1955...

Question
