Another good choice—Giraffe has not been digitized AFAIK. It was designed and patented by Charles Beeler, Jr. in Jan-Feb 1891; he assigned the rights to MacKellar, Smiths & Jordan [USPTO D20563]. After the ATF merger of 1892, it was shown only once and then apparently discontinued.¹
Sometimes taking a break to “knock out a few no-brainers” can be very satisfying, huh? Thanks for preserving the easy ones as well as the killer tuffies. On a Type for Posterity Checklist, they are equally valued.
I would be glad to curate these specimens for future use as historical documentation of existing work by Alan and other THP partners. If you are willing to take the trouble, please transmit them to me privately as eMail attachments.
Thanks again for your valued service to The Type Heritage Project!
