EXTREMELY FINE STRIKE OF THIS SCARCE LINCOLN MEMORIAL CANCELLATION ON AN OYSTER DEALER COVER.
Very few strikes of this Lincoln memorial cancellation are known on cover, and most are blurry or weak strikes. The New York State Comptroller in 1866 was Thomas Hillhouse. The Albany postmaster in 1866 was George Dawson. Both Hillhouse and Dawson were ardent pro-Union Republicans.
