A Universal Match Corp. trademark for matchcovers that had a waxy surface coating, spattered in a random manner over the entire surface of the matchcover. This trademark was first used in 1969 and there are approximately 5800 different known matchcovers. In 1979, the waxy coating was changed to include three new patterned designs. Fleur de Lis consisted of the French Fleur de Lis design. Grain was slightly wavy lines running the length of the matchcover. Tear Drop was a pattern, which looked like fishnet. All were discontinued in 1987. (See Florentine).
