I ran across a article a while back stating
That trading stamps starting in England
before Schuster stamps in the US 1891.

I am sure I have seen Trading Stamps covered in a Cinderella Stamp Club magazine but all my copies are in storage while I move house.  Anyone else have a copy?

That link provides a fascinating read! 

I would never have thought that reading Hansard could be so educational and interesting but it is a true window on the times, the House Of Lords, and the suspicion trading stamps were held in during their early years.
