Just a little explanation here for some of the stamp makers listed.
Ray Hackbarth was a stamp maker in Phoenix, Arizona through the 1960s. He was one of the earlier stamp makers to use stainless steel for his stamps. Many of the great carvers then and now prize his stamps for the very crisp clean lines and checkering. He had a brochure listing his stamps for mail order. Some of these stamps have a corresponding number to the brochure. His business and name were taken over by Ellis Barnes who then made stamps under the Gomph-Hackbarth name.
The "Unmarked" stamps are just that - unmarked. They may have been made by McMillen, Eberly, or any of the other old stamp makers who did not mark their stamps much if it all. McMillen has been in business a long time and the most prolific, so odds are good most of the unmarked stamps were made by them. However we can't count out the other good makers of the day who made just as good a stamp.
