I can do Camp Floyd. This is the Gove correspondence (Jesse Gove) right before the troops got called back due to the war.

Since this topic appears to have been revived as of a couple of months ago, thought I would add a few Arizona Territory cancels I found in my wife's Arizona postmark collection. Arizona became a state on Valentines day, February 14, 1912.

Here is an Prescott, Arizona Territory cover to Switzerland, via New York exchange office with registration label required on all foreign mail.






My 2012 Census of these exchange label usages recorded five such covers. My estimate today is that there may be no more than 5 in the unrecord files accumulated but not update in my census archives.

Postcard from Lewiston to Boise:





Found this tidbit online:

"In 1863, Lewiston, Idaho was the original Idaho State Capitol site until Boise was made the capitol in 1890 which is also when President Benjamin Harrison signed Idaho into statehood. The story behind Boise becoming the capitol is government workers sneaked in and stole the state seal from Lewiston and fled to Boise in the middle of the night."



I wonder if they stole the seal from the Court House also...

In hopes of jump starting this fun thread, I'll add one that I've posted elsewhere. But Canton Island is such an obscure little U.S. territory that it seemed like a nice addition.

You aren't kidding. I had to look it up.

I'll share some of my favorite territorials here over the next few days. This one from my Tombstone collection (AZ terr to NM terr) is the only one dated during the week of the O.K. Corral shooting -- I think of it as my "get out of Dodge" cover since it left town just 5 days before the event.

Nice to see some fresh material here -- that Tombstone piece is terrific!

Here is a 1907 territorial RPO, between Albuquerque (NM) and Williams (AZ). The postcard features a bullfight!

Here's a Territorial RPO and a little






Just a guess that sender left the card in his luggage and found it while aboard the Northern Pacific out of Bismarck, D. T.
Also a guess as to where & why the carrier CDS was applied.
But the W T Garratt Co may have use that CDS as a receiver because it has a time logo. It was a large company.

The carrier mark is a postal mark applied when the card got to the carrier department in the San Francisco PO.

Thank you John. I had thought carrier markers were used when it was a paid service. I did find a San Francisco C Deliv. CDS used 1877-78 in the Williams book.
