One of the big fads of the 1920s was the radio verification stamp.  With a letter to a station about their programs and a dime, a listener could get a handsome stamp with the station’s call sign,  made for the  EKKO Company. The EKKO Company made an album to put the stamps in,  and the hobby blossomed into a craze in  1924. —
