Years ago I bought a trunk and had to take it as is.
Meaning all the junk inside.
I actually found several treasures in there among old clothes and newspapers.
Like a collection of eighteen rubber stamps from a automobile dealership.
These seven are for correspondence.
Good shape for their age - 1930's and 1940's.
The wood on most appears to be cherry or mahogany.
The quickie part was cleaning and waxing the wood.
There is some damage to the rubber pad under each stamp.
They print clearly.
I displayed all of them in a big jar for years.
When I changed the decor in the den, the stamps were packed away.
I think I am ready to let them go.
Most were made by the Hartford Stamp Works.
Smith was one of the partners in the dealership.
The date stamp is stuck at July, 1941 - about the time the dealership closed.
How do I know?
The rest of the stamps are all about the business.
I plan to put these on Etsy.
Question for all of you: List them separately, in groups, or all eighteen stamps together?
I am leaning towards keeping them together.
They have been a family for so long.
