    Haskell Coffin Hires Girl Advertising Tray Haskell Coffin became known for his illustrations picturing the American Beauty, Coffin Girl, on calendars, magazine covers, and advertisements. Here we offer one of Haskell Coffin's girls on a Hires soft drink tray. The wonderful soft colors and detailed depiction of this lady's face make this a stunning example of his artwork. The collectibility of these trays is not only for the graphic appeal but also for the product that is advertised. Hires items are certainly one of the most prized areas to collect. The tray shows very little problems to the tin lithography. A small spot exists in the lady's hair that we mention purely for accuracy, as its effect is minimal. This tray presents in excellent condition.
