Oh boy!

Apparently this old thing is real and not a hipster reproduction. At first I found little information on the Ever Ready Label Corp. All I could seem to find were other stamps and stickers they made, and an add for their services in a 1935 magazine digitized by Google.

Turns out though the stamp was part of a series of stamps made after the great depression.They were sold with proceeds going to the salvation army. 

Wonderfully absurd without context - but interesting with it! 

Context! That thing that matters!
