A packet of vintage St. Patrick seals by Dennison Mfg. Co., Framingham, Mass., U.S.A., No. 80-924.
The cover boasts of 36 seals in six different designs, but some are missing from my thrift store find. In fact, the missing ones are what charm me…
It’s the plain old shamrock seals or stickers which are missing. Was this owned by a teacher or parent who wanted to be fair by giving each child the same seal? Were the shamrock’s just the right size for the project or envelope or whatnot? Wondering is part of the charm for me.
Personally, I find the pretty pinup woman like a figurehead on the Eire harp the coolest seal. …Maybe the original owner was saving those for him or herself. *wink*
