Tom Casper submitted these thoughts on dealer Arthur Henry Kraus. Thanks! -Editor
I was pleased to read the biography of Arthur Henry Kraus submitted by John Lupia in The E-Sylum of May 22, 2016. Being from my
home town, I had previously researched Kraus. I was unaware of much of the information contained in his bio. I want to share two related
Kraus items, both dated 1925. The first is a postcard advertising himself as a stamp and coin collector. The back of the postcard
advertises his monthly publication, "The Stamp and Coin Collector" which costs 25c a year. I haven't come across
a issue of that publication.
The second item is a uncashed check from A.H. Kraus. It is signed by him is drawn on the West Side Bank in Milwaukee, WI. It lists his
main occupation as a printer but also mentions he sells office supplies, sporting goods, stamps, toys and variety goods. At the bottom of
the check it stated, "Let Kraus print your checks". So far, I haven't found a bank check indicating it was printed by Kraus.
Attached are scans of both sides of the post card and the front of the check.
