This is my most recently acquired advertising cover. It was a gift to me from my Uncle Doug."The first American paint maker, Devoe. founded USA" Advertising Cover from Curwensville, Pa. but they have it spelled Curwinsville curiously? I recently lived in Curwensville and there is really nothing there anymore but I do enjoy local history so I was quick to accept it! Far be it from me to deny this poor thing a good home!
Edited to add scan (below) This is MY SCAN.
As an afterthought- August 24th, 1915 Due to the date I suspect this could be either a #461(6/18/1915 6/24/1915 type I. 11 x 11 S/L flat plate 18.5-19 x 22 carmine, pale carmine) ??
Right side up=business Upside down=lovesick, lonesome or I love you Sideways, head to the right=love & kisses Sideways, head to the left=I promise not to leave you :-) Diagonal, towards the right=Won't you marry me? Diagonal, towards the left=Yes, I will
Yeah, I'm very aware of that stuff and done some lengthy posts on that very subject however, I don't think this was the case here huckles. It was most likely done quite hastily by a store employee writing to John Deere Plow Co. for an order or something?
Thank you Steve. That's some pretty comprehensive research there! lol I only lived there 3 years and isolated way out in "farm land ville" but it seems like it was hopping a hundred or so years ago when you stop and look at all the old buildings. A lot of them was stores but sadly and unceremoniously turned into apartments.
I mainly collect the US Classic singles & covers also, classic era B.O.B. items.
