RS116e John F. Henry Medicine Stamp, experimental silk paper

$200.00

John F. Henry was one of the sons in J.M. Henry & Sons, a proprietary medicine firm operating in the 1850’s in Vermont. In 1865 John went to New York to work for Demas Barnes. Barnes wanted to run for Congress and pursue other activities, so in 1868 Henry took over as successor. By 1869 Henry must have run out of proprietary stamps from Barnes, so he ordered his own. The stamps were issued from October 1869 to February of 1883.
