1922 – Hennig

3 October 2015


1427 103rd Avenue

This mark pushes back Otto Hennig’s dates back a few years.

1922 – N. Lena

29 September 2015


1380 102nd Avenue

It looks like N. Lena may have modified a stamp with a “191X” date to make this. But I have no evidence that he was active before 1920, so who knows.

1922 – M. A. Lopes

21 July 2015


1605 90th Avenue

Here’s a beautiful strike from the only year I’ve found from the elder Mr. Lopes.

1922 – M. B. Wiggins

7 June 2015


1734 Auseon Street

It looks like early in 1922, M. B. Wiggins used large numerals for the date. Later that year he used smaller digits. “2-22” was pretty special. Maybe he started business on 2/2/22, the same day that James Joyce’s Ulysses was published.

1922 – R. C. Malone

1 January 2015


6806 Fremont Street

There are four of these at this address, all of them pristine. A good way to start the new year.

1922 – M. B. Wiggins

7 November 2014


2900 Seminary Avenue

This is a much better example than the one I had before.

1922 – M. A. Lopes

1 September 2014


2808 Monticello Avenue

Finally I’ve found a dated mark by M. A. Lopes, who may or may not be related to the later Frank Lopes. I think of him as Lopes the Elder.
