My new Advert cover. It's for Lava soap, has a cancel (I believe from 1908) & 2˘ postage due stamp. It was just an impulse buy and the price as right so I thought what's the harm? lol

Great cover ILS

They seemed to have had a lot of pride in their advert covers around the turn of the 19th century more so than we do now.

They were a lot cheaper to produce back then, and little advertising is sent through the mail now except for politicians and some local ads.

ILS, Can't be a 1908 cancel. #332 didn't go on sale until November 1908. Probably a May, 1909 cancel. Still its a very nice multiple color advertising cover. I'd add it to my collection anytime

Makes sense. I couldn't make it out but thought 08 or 09. Thank you Al E. Gator.

The cover with contents weighed 2 ounces instead of one, hence the postage due. Yes, absolutely put it in the postmark calendar. :)

It is by coincidence that this thread came up again. Just last night, I was at our local stamp club meeting and, I bought this cover that was in a small of covers.

This cover, among a few others made my night <G>

Very nice Bujutsu. Thanks for drawing my attention to this one. I like especially that it's addressed to 'Baby Reid'.

What is funny is that "lava" is Spanish for "wash".
