      The earlier “Union Leader” have “Uncle Sam” before the “Eagle” type. The Uncle Sam variation should not to be confused with the actual “Uncle Sam Brand” see link:
      Some of the Uncle Sam’s were wider than the normal pocket size like this one..

      There are “Free Sample” and “Complementary” version of the Eagle type, which are uncommon. There is a rare Eagle version with a hand holding a pipe on the backside.
      This rare one is very elusive since the front of it looks just like all the rest of the Eagle type. One of these days I will have the Union Leader page set up on my website at:
