8863 Birdsall & King clothes die-cut hat & dog trade card Whitney’s Point, NY

Excellent condition. Blank reverse w/ single age tone spot from this trade card having been in a Victorian album.

This hat / dog format die-cut trade card is very scarce.

This town, currently called Whitney Point, NY, was settled around 1791, and was named after the Thomas and William Whitney family.

Of particular note is an overprint stamp on the normally blank reverse - Mae W. Smith. First, this may have been someone connected to the Birdsall & King store.

But maybe not. This type of stamp imprint, very much including the font style, was typical of social calling card imprints.

Printer signature:  None
