Well I'm getting closer to finishing off the Tatoo study that commenced back at the end of September but enough new material has rolled in that I am pushing that by a week or two. This week, another two sets that were printed as "transferrables" will be under the ol' 'scope instead.
In 1964 (I think) a set of 24 Military Emblems were included in party boxes of Bazooka. These were actually issued in panels of two and are very hard to find:
These are smaller than the Bazooka emblems and measure 2" x 3 1/4", with the topper taking up 3/4" of the real estate. Still no Navy emblems, those Shorin's were all drafted as doughboys back in 1917-18! As you can see these were proto-cloth stickers. Topps vacillated on self-stick vs. water-activated stickers for several years and I suspect it was mostly due how it impacted the overall cost of a particular set, noting sometimes the self-stick ("pressure sensitive") stock wasn't always available.
Despite no relevant content-Happy Hallowe'en to you all!
