Japanese era “directional cachets” used on New Ilhan covers leading the way to the USA

Old Korea

When I was writing my earlier article on New Ilhan (see KP Vol. 57 No. 1), I didn’t even realize I had more envelopes from the New Ilhan company. When I did realize, I looked around for more envelopes from New Ilhan and discovered several other items. All these envelopes must have come from the same source, they are all addressed to C.E. Jamieson & Company. I guess someone saved them and they ended up in someone’s collection.

Jamieson & Co. was started in 1922, still exists in Windsor, Canada, just across the Detroit River. New Ilhan had probably made contact with them when he was at the University of Michigan and they would have fit in with the vitamins and items like that for his own company in Korea.
