RO137e New York Telegraph Matches Experimental Silk Revenue Stamp
The New York Match Company was the successor to B. & H. D. Howard after Benoni Howard was convicted of counterfeiting revenue stamps and sentenced to five years of hard labor. The company also bought out Bauer & Beudel. In addition to its own “N.Y. Match Co.” stamps, the firm also used the stamps of its acquired companies. The New York Match Company’s offices were located at 1 Park Place, where Boyd’s local post also had its offices.
