Found: Train themed school Achievement In stamps?

Post by benjclark »

My Dad bought an old school desk from the little country school he attended, (and my grandfather too!). Anyway, we were moving it and I found several of these little stamps curled up and lost for ... a long time ... in the hollow metal frame.

They read "Achievement In" and in the blank space below, someone would fill in the course of study the study. Has anyone seen these before? I assume they are very common, but not commonly collected/ kept. I would guess they were collected in a folder of some kind and redeemed later for prizes. These were the better of the lot. We found maybe six.

If you happen to know more/better, please let me know! Otherwise, enjoy these cool train stamps.
