Nice stamps! You should research the bottom cover 3c envelope that is revalued to 2c. The variety may be very valuable. Refer to Scott, and also the upcoming Siegel sale 1039 Scarsdale Part 9. Even if it is not a huge rarity, the misregistration of the revalue makes it interesting. Also car related, one has to wonder if the addressee is the same Mitsubishi as the modern car company.

A little bit more information on that last cover scanned. The return address is the General American Car Company, Chicago. Further research confirms that it was a subsidiary of the General American Tank Car Company, a manufacturer of railroad freight cars:


Quote:
The General American Car Company was [a] subsidiary of General American Tank Car Corporation. Known to have received orders in 1921 for 500 refrig. cars for GNR; 600 rebuilt hoppers for IC; 600 freight cars and 14,000 tons steel rails for Chinese government. In 1922 for 700 40-ton refrig. cars for SP; 1,000 50-ton single sheathed auto cars and 250 40-ton stock cars for NP.


As for the addressee, Mitsubishi Goshi Kaisha, although part of the well known Mitsubishi family, it was a subsidiary corporation dealing with the export of steel and iron and machinery:



The connection between the two firms is certainly understandable, but alas, not connected at all with the automobile industry.

The Massachusetts Old Home Week is part of a series, issued annually; they were written up in the American Philatelist some years ago.

Found these in an album I purchased in 2012 and just got around to looking at the back of book and found these three items. Especially like the 1932 cancelled in red ink Documentary.

I make the last one to be a U448c.

Depending on paper quality and watermark, it could be one of 4 UPSS numbers, with cat prices ranging from $3 to $30.
