General Edward F Jones Scale Advertising Card CDV Size Binghamton NY Circa 1900 Jones He Pays the Freight Scale Company


This card was likely an advertisement for his Scale Company. His slogan was He Pays the Freight. He was Lt. Governor of NY and is quite famous in Binghamton area for his politics, and Civil war heroism. The card is the size of a CDV, but its thinner than typical cabinet cards. It was tucked inside our family album, the images are civil war era from our grandfather so I don't know if he served with this man ? or it was just because everyone knew him that they kept the advert. I love his HUGE mustache, mutton chops!

The back of the card has a short blurb, including their tag of Jones - He pays the freight His company was Jones Scale

Generally, buyers pay the additional costs such as duties, taxes, and customs clearance fees. Import charges can vary widely but are most commonly based on the price and type of item, package weight and dimensions, origin country, and the taxes, duties, and fees of the destination country.
Most sellers on Etsy are unable to predict which of these fees, if any, will be applied, and Etsy does not expect sellers to calculate or collect these fees or taxes. This information should be clarified in sellers' shop policies. You can learn more about shop policies here.
