Sale Number 1125, Lot Number 883, Local PostsFrazer & Co., Cincinnati O., 2c Black on Green (69L3), Frazer & Co., Cincinnati O., 2c Black on Green (69L3)Frazer & Co., Cincinnati O., 2c Black on Green (69L3). Full margins at sides, touched or slightly in at top and bottom, manuscript cancel (not tied) on Jul. 11, 1848 datelined folded letter to Nicholas Longworth in Cincinnati

VERY FINE. ONLY SEVEN COVERS BEARING THE FRAZER & COMPANY EAGLE STAMP ON GREEN ARE REPORTED. THIS EXAMPLE WAS HANDLED DURING FRAZER'S EMPLOYMENT AS A GOVERNMENT LETTER CARRIER.

The chronology of Frazer's involvement with the City Despatch Post and his second appointment as a letter carrier is significant, because any Frazer cover dated within the period of his carrier status -- Feb. 3, 1848, to Jun. 5, 1849 -- is a government-carrier usage, not a local-post usage. Prior to this cover we recorded only two other examples of the Frazer Eagle stamp used on cover during his time as a government letter carrier, both on Yellow paper (69L4). We record an additional three covers with the Horse & Rider stamp (69L6 and 69L8) during this period.

Robert B. Meyersburg reported six covers with Frazer & Co.'s Green stamp (Penny Post, Aug. 1992), including three local usages and three covers delivered to the post office (postage unpaid). A seventh cover was recently located and added to the count (Siegel Sale 908, lot 4875). The addressee of this letter, Nicholas Longworth, was the great-grandfather of Nicholas Longworth, the future House Speaker and son-in-law to Theodore Roosevelt.
