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. —reception_stamp.com
