McCoy Series 1 Scalloped Edges

McCoyS1WindsorDetroitFerry
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.

McCoy Listings update

McCoyS14B-001
I’ve updated the McCoy Printing Company listings of patriotic postcards to the updated site design, and added some additional material.

McCoy Series 6 update

McCoyS6_OwenSound
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.
