Usage conditions apply
Samuel Copp Jr. was a partner in the banking and exchange business of Allen, Copp, & Nisbet of St. Louis, Missouri during the 1860s. This trade card advertises the businesses as being located on the North-West corner of Second and Chesnut streets, and participating in sight exchange, bank notes, gold & silver coins, stocks, bonds, and mercantile papers, loans, and collections.
The Copp Collection contains a variety of household objects that the Copp family of Connecticut used from around 1700 until the mid-1800s. Part of the Puritan Great Migration from England to Boston, the family eventually made their home in New London County, Connecticut, where their textiles, clothes, utensils, ceramics, books, bibles, and letters provide a vivid picture of daily life. More of the collection from the Division of Home and Community Life can be viewed by searching accession number 28810.
