Arsdorf–J. P. Kalbfleisch’s Private Cachet

 

Private cachets (or “chops”) are enjoyable, collectible, and fit nicely into my beyond-the-back-of-the-book albums. Think of the pleasure you’ll have finding chops while others pay inflated auction-house prices for often not-so-rare material.  You could specialize in one or a few professions or industries.  Take a look at this list for ideas:  http://www.industrie.lu/

Here’s a new addition from Arsdorf, the village of my maternal ancestors:
