Condition is excellent, sharp focus, card is 3.2" high but that is the size these postcardswere issued, I'm 100% sure as I have sold about a dozen over the years and all are this slightly smaller size.The company roots (LOL)began in the 1840s, but became a notedmanfacturerin the 1880s.

In 1902 it merged with severalother implement companies to form the American Seeding Machine Company, which was later merged with Oliver Farm Equipment in 1929, and most recently White Motor Company in 1960.
