|The picture shows a sample view of one of the (3) 1920 Individual Key Ring Company Correspondence Letters in this lot. Each of these are signed. They are all addressed to the same Salesman from Boston, Massachusetts. This company was a manufacturer of Advertising and Promotional Premium Key Rings.|
These 1920 letters would be of Historic interest to collectors of these small advertising novelties. The letterhead has a nice black and grayscale image of one of their keyring products. Inside that box it reads: "PATENTED IN U.S.A., GREAT BRITAIN, FRANCE, GERMANY, AND CANADA". The top section of the letterhead is marked as follows:
