I know I should be celebrating his birth and not asking about his mourning stamp. I do not have any covers or singles for the first US mourning stamp #77. I am sure someone has something to post that would be of interest.

bobgggg,
Do you know what year that is? I see that the cover had a mark for insufficient funds and a couple more circular cancels showing its route, very interesting. Plus the 2 fancy cancels.

StamperDude:

I am a member of the Mourning Stamps and Covers Club. I will check my reference material on covers/stamps related to your Late President. We have a quarterly publication I receive, and no doubt, some one from the United States will write an article about Mr. Lincoln's 200th anniversary. If that does happen, I shall photocopy it and post it to you.

The most important part of your collection is the reference material to go with it.

David

Here is an 1868 cover from New Orleans to Paris via New York, with three black Scott #77
15c Lincoln stamps cancelled by New Orleans crossroads fancy cancels, orange-brown
New York transit markings, and a blue Calais, France foreign mail receiving mark.





I bought this triple-rate cover about 9 months ago.

David,
I appreciate that. Thank you. I can always use reference material and have the opportunity to learn something new.

t360,
I knew that you would have something to add to this thread. That is some really nice penmanship on that cover.

Here it is!

An 1866 cover sent from New York to Paris, France with a solo 15c Lincoln stamp tied by a fancy cork
cancel. There is also a French transit marking and on the back is a Sept 16, 1866 Paris receiving mark.





In the upper left corner is written "Per Str. Persia Prepaid."

The Persia was a steamship in the Royal British and North America Mail-Packet Company's Cunard Line.

Thank you nuggehhill & stamperdude! I really like this stamp and wouldn't mind having a few more on covers to different foreign destinations.

Beautiful covers! Thanks for sharing.

I expect that we will see a lot of good Lincoln material over the next year.

Great covers guys.

I just love the classic stamps but they're even nicer when they are on wonderful covers like those.

Laswabbie,
I can just about guarantee that you will be seeing more Lincoln material this year. I hope to start a post after 2/9/09 of my new additions to my cachet cover collection. I will probaly be busting my budget for the year on this topic alone. I have already earmarked some christmas money for new covers.
