Lot 43: CD 106 PATENT / MAY 2, 1893 {Hemingray product}  Color: Aqua  Description: Very near mint. An interesting embossing variation produced by Hemingray: one side has no embossing where the HEMINGRAY / No 9 should be! One could speculate that they were sloppy and forgot to stamp half of the embossing; however, another theory is that one side of the mold became damaged and they needed to swap it out as quickly as possible so as not to hold up production. Whatever the reason, it's an uncommon variation and easy to overlook, so add this sleeper to your collection now!
