A FINE AND COMPLETELY SOUND EXAMPLE OF THIS MAJOR 20TH CENTURY RARITY.

Our unpublished census of Scott 314A contains 44 used examples, including three strips of three (one on cover), three singles on separate covers, and 32 single used copies, most of which were retrieved from mass mailings.

With the rising popularity of vending and affixing machines, the Bureau of Engraving and Printing received numerous requests from manufactures for supplies of imperforate stamps, which could then be privately perforated to conform to each firm's machine. In May 1908, a supply of 25 sheets (400 stamps per sheet) of the 4c 1902 Issue, without perforations, was delivered to the Schermack Mailing Machine Co. in Detroit. The entire supply was cut into coils with Schermack Type III perforations, designed for the firm's patented affixing machine and delivered to the Winfield Printing Co. for use on mass mailings of advertising material. Approximately 6,000 were used on a mailing for Hamilton Carhartt Manufacturer, and almost all of the 4,000 balance were used on a mailing for Burroughs Adding Machine Co.

Signed Bartels. With copy of 1969 P.F. certificate
