Thanks to M.F. Hartkamp for identifying this chop.

In a 1905 directory H.J. Martijn, Jr. was a partner with J. Ellerman in Commanditaire Vennootschap Martijn & Co. They were merchants and Commission Agents at 35 Beach Street and were agents for five firms. [See under the letter "C" for this firm.]

In a 1899 directory the name is spelt H. J. Martyn. We need a scan showing the right side of the chop to solve this problem.
