Random Ad - Prestcold Refrigerators (1960's)

Click to Enlarge
In this advert for 'direct-to-you' Prestcold Refrigerators I'm a bit suspicious of the word 'Identical'. It seems to me to imply that what they are selling may not actually be Prestcold fridges but only identical to them. 
Pre-decimal prices of course. GNS means Guineas which were £1 and 1 shilling or 105p - so 34Gns would be £35 and 14shillings. 
Why is there no 'd' in refrigerator but there is in 'fridge'? This sort of thing keeps me awake at night.
