Default ferguson bakery card, second request

Posted By: jim sexton

Apparently the 1916 D381 Ferguson Bakery card with the coupon still attached is a very rare item. I have been searching for quite some time, trying to find an image of this card. While several collectors have Fergusons, none had any with the coupon still attached. Does anyone on the board have an image of this or know where an image can be found? Many thanks, jims

I agree. My guess is Larry Frisch has some but I am not sure. I would love to see one too as I never have seen one either. I do have the Wood that is supposed to be one, but without that coupon? regards

I contacted Larry a few months ago. He said he had a large collection of the D381s, but not a single one with the coupon still attached.

OK then....if Larry F doesn't have one AND the collective experience that I have asked about this is about 300 yrs....is there really a Ferguson's Bakery type D381? I would be interested in what Bob Lemke would say about it? I am the type that either has to see something to believe it or get information from a very reliable source. The question remains...Is there really a Ferguson's Bakery type D381 or is this another urban card legend like the Darby Cigarettes cards (let's save that for another thread please)....regards all

The Ferguson's like Leon's Joe Wood card have a single line of print, and the Fleischmans have 2 lines of print.

I only have a scan of a Fleischmann with coupon, and I did a search on internet and found many others with coupons but they were all the Fleischmann's cards.

Yes, they are easy to tell apart but at this point I am very skeptical of ANY Ferguson's Bakery cards in the D381 series. I am waiting, and have been for years, to see even 1 Ferguson's coupon. I am not saying that they "don't" exist at all, rather I am saying I am very skeptical....since no one, that I have spoken with, has ever seen one....

It's clear that the Fergusons have only one line of text. Leon's example obviously has a trimmed bottom edge. I suppose it's possible that it is merely a trimmed card. But it sure seems more likely that the card had a tab that was cut off. So doesn't that mean these things were issued with tabs? Maybe the offer on those tabs was just so good that no one could resist cutting them off.

Paul- how is it clearly a Ferguson's and not a variation of a Fleischmann's? No one has ever seen one? I agree there was most likely a tab/coupon on Smokey Joe but who's to say what it was?

Leon your Wood card is the only card pictured on the Internet that has the single line (NAME/POSITION/TEAM all on one line), there are many pictures of D381's , many with coupons, but yours is the only one like that. I just think the Ferguson cards are far rarer, and with a coupon obviously even rarer.

Until someone shows me a single line card with a Fleishmann coupon, I will still think there are Fergusons. Where would they get that name??
