Wheat Ridge Seals.

Einar Holboell (d. 1927). a Luth. postal clerk in Copenhagen, Den., conceived the idea of a small seal for Christmas mail to raise money for children with tuberculosis. The seal appeared first in Den. 1904 and elsewhere soon thereafter. The first Wheat Ridge (see Wheat Ridge Foundation) seals appeared 1910.
