1872 Lillian Batchellor Reward of Merit, Braintree, Orange County VT
Handwritten on front: "To Lillie Batchellor, from J. Batchellor, Teacher." On the back is handwritten "For Perfect Marks, July 1872."
This Reward of Merit Card features a Victorian embellishments in green. This would have been given to a child for good school work. The back has two darker marks where early mucilage glue may have been to affix it to a scrapbook page, all the rage in the 19th century. Overall this is very clean. It is wonderful that Lillian was taught by a fellow Batchellor family teacher.

Note: Hello from ~debra. I have spent years collecting over 10,000 ID’d lost family photos & paper from US flea markets & antique shops. I do the best gen research I can, but am always open to corrections. This is an original antique item, not a reprint. A new high quality rigid sleeve is included for extra protection, especially during shipping. You may buy a piece alone, or large intimate 300 dpi scans of the front and back sent immediately via email, or both. Please search carefully, as they are often found together and many may be related. I also invite you to join me at Ancestorville Genealogy on facebook. Thank you, enjoy! ~Debra Clifford (contact info on top bar)
