"Merchandise Service", circle keystone logo. The interesting thing to note about these cars is that the stripe does not go across the door on these earlier models, and the tack board is black. S-Helper Service did a special run for Hoquat Hobbies (manufacturer IDs #01924 and 01925) which did have the stripe go across the door, and the tack board was body-color.
