2419 Seminary Avenue
There are a bunch of those all along Seminary between International and Foothill Boulevards. This is the best of them.

1947 Seminary Avenue
I’ve found two configurations of the 1912 Fred Austin mark; this is the more common one (the other has a curving date). It’s missing the outline because it apparently wasn’t pressed down as hard as usual.

I look forward to finding dated examples from Mr. Melvin.

5218 Foothill Boulevard
This clears up the mystery of the incomplete example I documented a while back.

2160 Vicksburg Avenue
Not much of an example, but I’m grateful for every date from this Fruitvale maker, whose marks don’t hold up to wear.

2137 Vicksburg Avenue
This is the earliest M. Cvetich mark I’ve found, and a second example of this racetrack format.
