Ran into these and have no idea what they are. Any information would be appreciated.

Thanks

Bob

Thanks for the rapid reply. Is there a resource that would allow me to get more information... like year of manufacture, etc...?

Done over a span of decades. I understand he donated a set of his "work" to APS/APRL. If they don't have information with the donation, then anyone's guess. You have a decent starter set there.

Thanks much for the link. A very interesting read. Is there a catalog or list that shows how many of these labels were created? Does anyone deal in them so I can get an idea of how much of a "starter" this grouping compromises?

Wow - some of those would make nice collateral items in a display.

Thank you John for sharing this information... I have collected so many cinderella stamps and labels throughout my collecting lifetime and and the Dave Churchman identification was very informative and a chance to add a valuable notation to my collection.
