Its Tight Lines Tuesday The First Kingfisher Lines ; Between 1890 and 1905 the E J Martin Company Kingfisher brand was granted a registered trade mark by the U S Patent Office for each of three slightly different variations to the artwork that was used on their first Kingfisher brand fishing line labels. Finding any one of these 100 + year old label variations today would be considered quite a rare find due to their age and extreme scarcity. However, finding all three of these label variations on the smaller sewing thread type size wooden spools would be considered next to impossible. And, in fact, these three examples shown here represent the only complete set currently known to exist today making them the rarest of those first Kingfisher lines from the 19th century.
