While cataloging my vast stacks of covers, I came across this little treasure.
It is a cover from Butler Brothers, San Francisco, CA to an individual in Manila, PI.
DAte: March 3, 1937
Total postage $3.75 applied.
Stamps: Nothing special, but all perfinned with a "D" rated perfin pattern B.B. or a cat # B33.
The cover was cancelled with the San Francisco Ferry branch office handstamp cancel.
This letter had some misfortune along the way and when it reached Manila, (20 days later) a Commonwealth of the Phillippine Officially Sealed sticker (OX11) was applied.
Value wise, the 18 D rated perfins @ around $1.25 each off cover. The OX11 nominal value.
I think however it is a NEAT cover and will likely pull a favorite spot in my collection.
Just thought I would share.
