This example of the McCoy Series 1 coin card has been overprinted by Victor E. Marentette & Son of Windsor, Ontario. The unusual feature of the card is that the card has scalloped edges, likely also added by Victor E. Marentette & Son. The card has been postally used from Windsor to Paris, France on May 28, 1906.
I’ve updated the McCoy Printing Company listings of patriotic postcards to the updated site design, and added some additional material.
The site has been updated with an addition to The McCoy Printing Company’s listings of Series 6, the patriotic series similar to the postcard shown at left. The Series 6 page
has now been added in the updated site format, with other patriotics from McCoy to follow as time permits.
The page shows a number of uses of the series from what was then the North West Territories, some with Assiniboia (ASSA) cancellations.
