Pleasing and unique lot of twelve (12) vintage pictorial business (commerce) billheads and commercial payment receipts.
All depict either the product or the factory of the company as well as the financial transaction.
All are attractive and well-preserved examples. Short video captures condition much better than words. Nicer lot than typical for the type.
Minor light toning and wear from folding, etc. as normal and typical for loose single sheet paper items of this vintage, perhaps small minor edge splits or flaws, but to our eyes, all remain entirely acceptable and nice looking examples.
