[Ephemera, Trade Cards] J. P. Coats' Best Six-cord Thread [caption title]
A. S. March & Co. 1880. 5 7/8 x 3 3/4 inches folded (5 7/8 x 7 1/2 inches when opened). Folding cardstock lithographed tradecard. Copyrighted 1880 by A. S. March & Co. Printed in red and silver background with black lettering (outsides) and black and white ink internally. Wear at the spine and tips, a nice example. Very Good. 
A nice trade card for J. P. Coats' thread noting the different sewing machines it can be used on, and what threads should be used for what kind of work. Highly decorative outside, no doubt to encourage people to retain it. Motifs include the pyramids, the Sphinx, and varous animals. This is one of two color schemes we've seen for this folding card.
