I’m glad you like the idea, Bob. I’ve always admired the Matty Tuxedo box for its sculptural quality, and thought that treating it like a sculpture was the way to go. I don’t have any specific recommendations for a mount maker. I think there are several makers who could do it very well. They key is to experiment with different angles and see what works best.

Very nice Bob and Tony! Those are fantastic pieces, especially the Tuxedo.

I am not sure what this is, but it appears to be hand painted and measures 9" x 11". I assume a tobacco store owner made it for the window or the door.

Default hmmmm

I wouldn't think the sign to be painted by or offered by the store owner. Possibly a jobber but most likely the company itself. Lorillard around since the 1700's and they weren't likely to leave such signage (modest as it is) to the purveyor. I have seen something quite similar - will need time to access the memory :-)

That Tuxedo box is spectacular......

Great recent pickups. Bob, have you tried any of those gum balls? They look tasty.

That is a great pack Jon! Congrats again on an amazing pick-up. The September 1886 tax stamp cancel would place that just a couple months before Goodwin & Co. transitioned to slide & shell packs.


Here are a couple other packs that Henry recently parted with. I love how Goodwin used the seal strips to help secure not only the side seam but cover the top of the pack. In the case of Old Judge the seal strip also wrapped around the bottom of the pack. When they transitioned to slide and shell packs they continued to print this seal strip on the slide although it didn't help seal anything (merely printed). Both of these paper packs date to 1884 (Aug. 1, 1884 cancel on Old Judge pack, March 1, 1884 cancel on Welcome). I believe the Welcome brand would be discontinued by Goodwin by the time they transitioned to slide and shell packs (card distribution).
