  • Office of Erie Manufacturing Co - 235 N Park Avenue - Dear Friend:  It is now over 2 weeks since we sent you 20 pieces of jewelry which you were to sell for us and receive an elegant Solid Gold Plated Watch and a solid rolled gold Cisco Gem Ring for your work.  We have not heard from you yet, but trust that you are working hard and selling them.  We are a little surprised that you have not taken advantage of our special 10 day offer, whereby you are to get the chain along with the watch and ring.  Possibly there is something that has detained you.  If so, we will extend the offer another week, so that if you return this card with the $2.00 in that time you will get both watch and chain and the ring.  We will expect to hear from you within a few days.  Please return this card or give your agency number when you write.  Yours truly, Erie Manufacturing Co - Agency No ______
  • reply card has 1843 McKinley 1901 pre printed, black 1 cent stamp and a United States of America oval with an eagle in black, in it
  • There is a damage to the card - but a different view of how they handled things back then.
  •  Please note that the majority of the cards are over 50 years old and as such, are sold AS IS. Tears will be noted but it would be too timely to note each fault on every card.  If condition is important to you - contact us with our number in the title & what it is that you would like to know or what it is that you would like pictured more closely.
  • Again, because of the age of the cards - they are noted as being USED - no matter if they are written on or not.
