There have been many Fur Houses or wholesale buyers of fur in the long history of the Fur Trade in America. All of these Fur Houses/Fur Buyers had their own shipping tags so trappers could document the contents of each parcel shipped for purchase or auction. The meager sample of shipping tags we have now will serve as a sample in the hope that some of our viewers will be collectors of this type of history and be willing to share. Should you have some old shipping tags and are willing to share please get in touch with us through the Contact NHTA link. These shipping tags were from the collection of Harris Ilsley of Weare, NH
