Let's see your horses! Here is a 1889 cover with an engraved horse breeder cachet.







Anyone else have horse stamps or covers?

That's it T. Now if someone has an extra one that would be even better. Isn't that the most beautiful stamp you ever saw? And off course it's a horse.

That is an interesting postmark with what appears to be an iron cross. Would that be a fancy cancel made from a cork?

Looks more like a rubber stamp than a hand-carved cork cancel to me. By the late 1880s rubber stamps were in use.
