This section will be for the serious deltiologists out there. It will be of interest mainly to those of you who collect Cincinnati postcards or certain publishers. These cards will be separated into various sets, in other words they will have a common theme or layout. Almost all postcards are in "sets", some exceptions are real photo postcards (some of those are also in sets) and advertising postcards. Most sets are broken up into various categories plus there are several obvious sets on other pages, such as the Bismarck cards in the Tavern section, the Hyde Park tornado cards, the 16 card flood and ice gorge, etc. These will not be in any sort of order. In order to show these sets as complete as possible I will be putting some Northern Kentucky cards in some of them.


  I would actually be a little surprised if you had even seen this set before. I have only seen one other set and it contained the same cards as you see here, so along with that and the fact that there are an even number of cards I am reasonably secure in the belief that this is the complete set. The company was located on the northwest corner of Fillmore and Richmond. Founded around 1875, it soon was one of the largest supplier of coffins and undertaker's supplies in Cincinnati. During WWII 250,000 memorial caskets were needed for servicemen lost in battle overseas. Having won the contract, the company upgraded its production facilities and began producing a casket every two minutes until the order was filled. Publisher is unknown although they probably were produced by the company.

   The Cincinnati Coffin Co. issued a second set. No idea how many cards are in this one. If I were to guess I would say eight like the above set.

  This series seems to have 2 reprints. The first set are private mailing cards. The second set are of the undivided back type, and the third set have divided backs. I will number each card and specify what ones I have. There are some variations on some cards between the types. I will show these variations where I can.

  The first four cards were published for the Dow Pharmacies. All have real ribbon material on the school medallion. They are apparently in the schools colors. I have no idea how many cards are in this set.

   This card has been trimmed and is slightly different from the other four, it also was not published for Dow Pharmacies.



  There are obviously two different types in this series. They are the one pennant, and the double pennant types. I know there are more of these, I have passed on some because of their condition. Some cards will be missing the publishers name, but they will have the double flying eagles on the back. That is the logo of Feicke-Desch and the publisher they bought out, Norwood.

Thomas, KY., Officers' Quarters; New recruits in line for mess;  Single Banner: One of the many buildings at Ft. Thomas, KY; Altamont Hotel.
