Thanks, Han.
Oops, I meant the 7500/7600 series, which was issued on the US Starr 
and/or Gennett circle label c. 1915-1917. THOSE were Vertical! The 4500 
series (c. 1918 - 1922) was lateral, as you say. That's what I get for 
trying to write from memory!
Ge 4533 looks right for the last of the circle labels.
