    Here is a stamp publication cover, actually a wrapper, I picked out of a bargain box at a local stamp bourse in Oklahoma City last weekend. The Stamp Wholesaler was a long-running publication first published by Lucius Jackson and then others from 1936-1999, and for another year by Van Dahl Publications. It was a biweekly and ceased publication in 2000 according to the American Philatelic Research Library. Undated, except for the pencil annotation 3/29/48.

    I was a reader of "The STAMP WHOLESALER" for a number of years.
    Herman Herst jr. wrote a column there,what was quite entertaining.

    Here is one for the <STAMP DETECTIVE>. J.V. Painter was a famous collector late-19th to early 20th century:

    What dealer in New York held Box 243 in 1896?:rolleyes:

    From the shoe box collection comes this Nassau Street cover from Herbert A. Swift, also doing business as Wakonda Stamp Co. The American Stamp Dealers Assoc list does not include a x-reference from Wakonda to Swift and does not list Herbert Swift separately. It appears there were a few of these dealers that operated under two or more names. This cover is also one of the few that includes any kind of graphics in its return address, i.e. the stamp image with "U.S. Only" imposed on the map of the U.S.

    Here's my last Nassau Street stamp dealer's cover from the shoe box collection. An unusual name, Trifone. A surname, perhaps? Trifone Stamp Studio is not on the American Stamp Dealers Association list of Nassau Street dealers, also unusual given it dates back to the 1950s. Unfortunately, I know nothing about it.

    Here are two Nassau Street covers, and no Molokai, they are not from my shoe box albums! :woot: Recent acquisitions, both. First, is a first-day cover of Sc. 778, the souvenir sheet commemorating the 3rd International Philatelic Exposition held in New York City and posted by Eugene Costales to a customer. The second from a lesser known dealer, Metropolitan Stamps. The latter looks like it may have carried a price list or advertising of some kind.

    The Silver Mine, to which the Costales cover is addressed. was an Inn and Tavern in Norwalk, Connecticut, dating back to the early 19th century. It may be the addressee was the owner or possibly a resident.

    1910 cover, probably before the stamp dealers moved in!

    I would like to see it. Molokai is also interested in photos of Nassau Street office buildings. Why don't you post it here and we all can take a look at it.

    Thanks.

    Mostly attorneys and a couple of publishers before the stamp stampede. I think the oldest NS dealer I have is 1888. My current interest is in learning about the various building, getting pictures, trying to build a map circa 1930 or so.
