RO135d F. P. Newton & Co. Match Stamp, Woodbridge, CT

$6.00

A succession of companies used the Woodbridge, Connecticut match factory, founded in 1835. This particular die with modifications was used by all of them:¬†Frank E. Clark, Brockett & Newton, Clark Match Co. and F.P. Newton & Co. Frederick P. Newton, brother-in-law of Frank Clark, ran the company from 1877 until the Diamond Match Company bought the factory in 1883. Newton had the stamp die altered to insert his name and a very small legend, “Successor to” under it. These stamps were issued from August of 1877 through mid-March of 1883.
