No. 94 Pine Street, New York,
Are now manufacturing their
splendid Collars, which for shape, appearance, and durability are FAR IN ADVANCE
of anything heretofore produced. They are the inventors and manufacturers of the
only real "TURN-OVER" COLLAR ever offered. These Collars are infinitely SUPERIOR
TO STEEL, being more pliable, and the material of which they are manufactured
BEING A NON-CONDUCTOR, renders them free from the objectionable feature of the
steel collar, viz.: the courting of that dangerous element, electricity, in the
shape of lightning. Inclose $1 for a "Choker," or $1.50 for a genuine "half
turn-over" collar, to the AMERICAN ENAMELED METALLIC COLLAR COMPANY, Box No.
