Hi team, another 26 fresh from the letterbox, on a piece so I included the post mark
Looks like an early printing to me no recurs located by me but I may be wrong!

I think this is the doubling of the right frame line.

This thread needs some juice. Here's a plate 11 26A with a bit of imprint.

What is visible of the frame lines seems pretty solid. I'd vote 36 rather than 36b.

Here's a pair of "#43"s from a turn of the century approval book. Check out the prices. The prices adjusted for inflation are $45. and $30. approximately.

Thanks Classic Coins. I was going to try and mount them as they are in a showgard mount. Trim it down a little.

Three #24s on cover.

This is an old scan, but the best one I could locate without having to make a new one. Someone has since erased the L-35 from the cover.



We have Russell, Majors and Waddell to thank for this cover. They founded the Central Overland California and Pikes Peak Express Co. It filled a need of getting mail to and from the Pikes Peak Gold rush area in the mountains. They also started this thing called the Pony Express; although this is not a Pony cover. This went to the mines at Mountain City.

#26 on cover.



This goes with my last post.

Brownville, in the Nebraska Territory, is up the Missouri River a way from St Joseph. So this cover originated in one territory, traveled into the US (at St Joseph), then traveled into the Kansas Territory. At least the US considered it the KT. Some of the people there called it something else.

In looking at this cover, and the last one I posted, where oh where is Mountain City?

The Jefferson Territory was (illegally) formed by miners in the mountain area because they were so cut off from the rest of the world, that they felt that they needed their own representation.

Wow!!

I'm just hoping to add a Territory CDS cover, any Territory CDS. Your's is much more than that.
