SOME ADDITIONAL J.F. CUTTER STUFF
John F. Cutter felt it necessary to have this article published in a California paper on Sep. 2, 1872.
The J.F.Cutter 'Star in Shield' trademark was awarded by the patent office in early 1871. (see previous posting on J.F. trademark Aug. 9, 2009 - preview of ABA lot 92)
Interestingly, John F. Cutter (Martin and Henarie)? also had registered the brand in California in April of 1870.
This is the earliest ad I have seen for J.F. Cutter Extra. Feb. thru May 9th, of 1871.
Ad refers to the product being "put up in large bottles". This is referring to a fifth size container, instead of the formerly popular and more standard 'sixth'.
