Hmmmm....I don't know that I've ever looked that closely at these. I actually think there are three versions of this card if I recall correctly.

Awesome letters Jeff.

The transcription is a nice touch.

What is the postmark on the Seamless Steel Tubes PC ? On the postcard it states that he is 21 years old, he would be 21 on Dec 18,1907. Thanks

October 1907. All known Seamless Cobb's that have been postmarked are from October 07 I believe. Seamless Steel Tube Co must have just decided he was close enough to 21 at time of production.

I think your Seamless is one of my favorite pieces in the hobby. I love it more that he apologizes for writing on an advertising card.
