 I was going by my research in Sony Music's files for Columbia releases, and the dates I cited corresponded with release dates of Columbia product in that same time frame. (And of course, today Sony owns both Columbia and RCA.) If RCA began shipping the product on a Sunday, chances are such product would have been at the record stores by Monday.

 You're probably correct, though where the advert only says "Week of..." I prefer to just add the month; at a remove of sixty-six years that's likely to suffice in almost all cases.

 If my calculations are correct, '51-12' would have indicated an official release date (i.e. it being shipped to record stores) of 26 March 1951. (Release dates in those days usually fell on a Monday - 25 March which the ad cited as "week of" was on a Sunday.) By this, one could guess the next few weeks thus:
- 51-13 - 2 Apr 1951
- 51-14 - 9 Apr 1951
- 51-15 - 16 Apr 1951
- 51-16 - 23 Apr 1951
- 51-17 - 30 Apr 1951
- 51-18 - 7 May 1951
- 51-19 - 14 May 1951
- 51-20 - 21 May 1951
- 51-21 - 28 May 1951
- 51-22 - 4 Jun 1951

 The "51-12" seems to refer to the record being released in the 12th week of 1951. See Billboard, 21 March 1951, p.25, where the list of RCA New Releases for the week has a little "Release 51-12" near the top.
