VERY FINE. FEWER THAN A HALF-DOZEN 1869 PICTORIAL COVERS FROM ALASKA TERRITORY ARE BELIEVED TO EXIST. AN IMPORTANT COVER FOR THE ISSUE AND IN THE STUDY OF EARLY TERRITORIAL POSTAL HISTORY.

From 1867 until 1884, the region later known as the District of Alaska (1884), Territory of Alaska (1912) and the State of Alaska (1959) was officially known as the Department of Alaska. Until 1877 it was under the jurisdiction of the U.S. Army. The Census of 1870 reported 461 whites living in Alaska (with no effort made to count the Eskimo population). Covers from Alaska pre-dating the 1890s are rare, and the 1869 PRA Census estimated three to six extant.

Ex Gimelson. With 1976 P.F. certificate
