Here are there from San Francisco, all sent to Eugene Brown in Mendocino. Looks like American Biscuit and California cracker were baked in the same building.

Jimwentzell, that's a great cover and story! Thanks for posting. I wonder if you could post a close-up of the stamp on the left side. Is that a private proprietary? Why would someone put that on a cover?

This 1942 advertising cover featured Gladland News, used a 1 1/4 cent rate for the midwest US horticulture publication.

I like this one, not only for the product ad, but also the message to the postmaster and the lack of postmark.

The corner message also helps explain the product.

lack of postmark ...


... on the pad company envelope. Looks like this was a prepaid return envelope which was stamped, folded and enclosed in the outer mailing cover but never mailed back.

Well, that does make sense! I hadn't considered it. Brilliant...

I thought it just never got sent and didn't really give it another thought.
