Mellone #6, #7, #8

Artopages Cachets


Artopages cachets were produced by Alton A. Weigel. The first Artopages cachet appeared in 1962. The above cover is Mellone number 6.


Mellone assigns both numbers 7 and 8 to the above design. I suspect they are simply printed in different colors, but there is no way to confirm that with the tiny black and white photos in the Mellone catalog. I'm guessing the above cover is number 8, judging from the shading of the design. If you know anything about these varieties, please email me with details.
