This is about as far back in the book as I can think of, to the point that I am wondering if it is real or a cinderella. Some things I am reading suggest they are legitimate, but others not.

Here is a short read about the McDonald County secession of 1961.

And a short read about the private dispatch stamps that were prepared to deliver mail to the post office.

I found this cover at a local antique store, here in SW Missouri, which got me searching for information.



Thoughts?

Anyone have any further information about the stamps or their usage?

A very interesting story.
When I first say the cover shown, my first thought (before I saw the date) it was from the 18XX's something.
