Anyone have old Odyssey Magazines from the early to mid 80s? (March 1983 specifically)

I'm trying to find a specific issue of Odyssey (the kids' astronomy magazine published by Kalmbach) and even if you're not selling yours, maybe you can help me identify which issue it is. I had a "letter to Ulysses 4-11" (their friendly robot mascot) published in an issue of Odyssey. Sometime between 1984ish and 1986ish. If you have some from this era, send me a message and let's find it? Even a photo of the letter would be great but I definitely want to know which issue it is at least. I think my Odysseys were a casualty of an overzealous parental cleaning...

Thanks!

Clarification: I believe that the issue may have been earlier; possibly between 1982 and 1985, and more likely '82 or '83.

I might possible have it, but it'll be hard to dig out. Keep nagging me about it, and I'll try to find the time to get to it (among the six decades of S & T and almost every issue of Astronomy).

Hi KidOrion--

 

Here's a periodic nag! And a bump of this thread for anyone else that may have these. I'll shoot you a DM with some more details.

Update: it's the March 1983 issue of Odyssey that I'm specifically looking for! (With Halley's Comet/pic of Edmond Halley on the cover.)

I  was able to get one on eBay but the cover tore due to the adhesive on how it was packaged. My letter was intact. I'd still love to get an un-torn copy. So if anyone has a March 1983 Odyssey you're willing to part with, please give me a shout. Thanks!
