JR!

I really don't think that it's a lack of our Rogers guys sharing their wisdom, which I count myself as one of them, but rather that this green label thing is just an anomaly. I think that Glenn hit the nail on the head that this was simply a printing issue. I was in the graphics/newspaper industry many years ago, servicing laser imagesetters. I had many opportunities to be in the actual printing and proofing areas of so many businesses and you'd be surprised at how many times mistakes are made before the final product is approved.

Like Glenn mentioned, this was probably just an issue with certain colors not mixing properly, or even being out of some inks. They probably just chose to send a small batch of these green ink labels and Rogers accepted them. That's my educated guess. We may never know that real reason, but these kind of things are always going to be with us!

So, I may have the only two green labeled Rogers drums in existence. I would think a true Rogers collector would want these in their collection regardless of the condition of the drums.

I think you're attempting to put way too much importance on this "green label" thing. Are you saying you are now going to sell them, simply because those two green labels may, or may not, be important to a collector? How would they even display the drum to view the labels? I just think you're making too big a deal over these green labels. Until a true "expert" can offer substantiated information as to these labels, I think the best we can do is what has already been provided on this topic.

I think it's more like no one really knows the answer yet? Almost 50 years ago since these were made. We'll have to give it some time and see if anyone else adds something. In the meantime enjoy those Rogers!! If anything the rare green tags add some mystique to them! On another note printers do make mistakes. I've run jobs in the wrong color a few times before. Brain **** or in a hurry and misread the job ticket. It happens. :-)

It was meant to be tongue in cheek, I know it's nothing special.

No clue, but it's not surprising in the Fulleton PowerTone era. I don't think I've owned any Rogers from that era, so haven't seen that green ink before. Might be worth a check of the singles for sale at Jollity Drum Farm to see if he has any with green labels.

I guess this will remain a mystery for awhile.

Mike I think your right on the faded ink. This label was posted on FB. Brown ink faded to green. I've never seen ink fade like this. But here it is!
