McCoy Printing Company
According to Michael J. Smith and William P. Angley in their “The McCoy Printing Company Picture Postcard Handbook, 1900–1910”, Lonzo Fisher McCoy, founder of The McCoy Printing Company, got his start while working for P.D. Ayer & Co. of Moncton, New Brunswick, a postcard publisher in the early 20th century. He subsequently set up his own printing company and began publishing postcards from Moncton.
My personal interest is in the company’s patriotic postcards. The series numbers below are from the Smith & Angley handbook.
Series 11 features the Coronation Crown & crossed swords. King Edward VII was crowned at Westminster Abbey on 9 August 1902, although it had originally been scheduled for 26 June 1902, however Edward was diagnosed with appendicitis two days earlier. The series has been seen with the earliest usage of July 22, 1902.
The series has been identified with 9 cards to date.
