Rewards of Merit were commonly used throughout the nineteenth century. While generic versions were commercially available for purchase and use, those here were apparently printed locally with the possibility that they were printed at this school or another one. The slight variations in trimmed size, changing color stock and the occassionally misprinted ones suggest amateur printers.
