"Scourge of Man-Kind"
"Second Largest Killer of Man"
Actual printer's block used to print the above cachets.
These two unusual three colored Khol-Kraft
cachets feature a human skull and stress the warlike battle against cancer.
The two cachets differ only in the title and border color. I acquired
the printer's block from eBay. This block was used to print the identical
borders of both cachets. So far, I have been unable to discover very
much information about this cachetmaker. If you can provide any additional
information, please drop me a line at email@example.com.
The text on both cachets is identical and reads as follows:
"War is Hell," General Sherman said and so it is. However in three years of Korean Warfare, 25,604 gallant American soldiers were killed. Compare this tragic loss with the toll Cancer will take on American lives this year. 685 people will die from this disease EVERY DAY. 28 EVERY HOUR, 1 EVERY TWO MINUTES, for a total of 250,000. If War is hell, what is CANCER?
