U.S. Scott 634d Pair Bisect Stamps on Cover W/APEX Certificate

U.S. Scott Pair Bisect Stamps on CoverThis is a very interesting pair from Scott No. 634d booklet pane with a bisect tied to cover. The cancellation is from “Feb.13 A.M. 1937 MD.” We are not sure what the town name is at the top of the cancellation. But, the town name starts with either “C” or “G” followed by “RA” & it ends with “M”.

We submitted this cover, which we inherited from a relative, to APS for authentication in 2009. APEX authentication certificate No.189079 dated 9/17/2009 is included with the cover. The certificate states as follows: “United States, used pair from Scott No. 634d booklet pane, on a tolerated but illegal use of a bisect.”

The cover has some minor browning at the corners from early triangular mounts. There is a line of toning at the left front edge. The back has two tiny scuffs & two tiny specks of black paper residue from having been in an album. The cover measures 6” long by 3 1/2” wide. The image on the right shows the condition of this scarce cover.

We guarantee this item to be original as described (as does the APEX certificate) and we offer a full and prompt refund if you are not satisfied and if the item is returned in the same condition within 3 days of receipt.

Price: $100.00.

Nineteenth century dentist broadside19th Century Reading, PA Dentist Advertising Broadside

 

A large & rare dentist advertisement 9 1/8” long by 5 7/8” wide paper handout flyer. The flyer advertises the services of Dr. H. L. Johnson of 35 S. 6th St., Reading. Pa. The flyer begins with the heading “No Pain With Gas The Terrors of the Dental Chair Disarmed!” Shown is the scene of the interior of a dental office where the dentist has given gas to a patient who seems to relax content in the dental chair.

The flyer shows many bends, wrinkles, & creases. There are a few tiny pinpoint size spots worn through at the folds. These are minor & do not readily show up until the flyer is held up to the light. We do not know when this dentist was in business in Reading. But, we are estimating that this flyer dates circa 1890’s or so.
