Rubber Stamp Advertising Cover

[Advertising Illustration]

This interesting cover has many advertising cuts displayed all over its front. This manufacturing company, the A. C. Gibson Co, located in Buffalo, New York, obviously believed that if one product image was good, then many would be even better!

Some of these devices are of interest to postal history collectors. In particular, the ticket stamping machine (second from left, bottom row) is seen on certain types of railroad-related covers. Many railroad stations used this type of device to mark railroad tickets, but they also used them to mark internal railroad business mail. This cover is dated around 1900.
