A couple of additional postcards from McCoy Series 6 have been added—but with the twist that these cards both have back associated with Atkinson Bros.
Another interesting version of this series, using red ink for the caption and image, similar to the Owen Sound card, this one being from near Coleman, Alberta.
Yet another variation of this series, this time with the entire front in red, other than the illustration. A previously unreported version of this card with the standard green decorative border, but with the words “Owen Sound” added, and a red inset image was previously added. The reverse, with the words “Souvenir Post Card” rather than “Private Post Card” is printed in red in this variation rather than green.
Some additional cards from McCoy Series 6 have been added.
The McCoy listings have been expanded to include a page showing Series 11, the issue commemorating the coronation of King Edward VII in August 1902.
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.
I’ve updated the McCoy Printing Company listings of patriotic postcards to the updated site design, and added some additional material.
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.
