Scheetz's Bitter Cordial

Little is known about Jacob Scheetz or his Celebrated Bitter Cordial. His firm appears in the Philadelphia City Directory in 1870, but his private die proprietary stamp was first issued in July, 1872. It was last issued in August of 1875. 47,425 were printed, all on silk paper, and 10,500 of those were left imperforate. Both the perforated and imperforate varieties have their own catalog numbers.
