THIS IS AN ORIGINAL CRATE LABEL
This label was printed at the approximate date noted below, with the intention of being pasted on a wood crate.
APPROX. SIZE(inches): 10.25 x 11.25
APPROX. AGE: 1930’s
DESCRIPTION: Wonderful image of Indian Chief, note condition.
CONDITION: Looks like the borders were colored in with a red felt marker. All that I have gotten are like this and I think the reason was they used the red border for a second grade. The other possibility is a child drew on them, generally those drawn on by children or people are more elaborate, so I think it was a grade designation.
ORIGIN: Hebron, ME., Maine.
SHIPPER/GROWER: Indian Fruit Growers Association.
