VERY FINE STRIKE OF THE EXTREMELY RARE FORT WHIPPLE TWO-LINE MILITARY EXPRESS DATESTAMP. THIS IS THE ONLY EXAMPLE RECORDED IN BLACK.
One other example of this Fort Whipple Military Express datestamp is reported, incompletely struck in red on a legal-size cover. This example in black is clearly struck and on a more attractive cover. Ex Longfellow.
THE ONLY RECORDED ARIZONA TERRITORY COVER TO GREAT BRITAIN. A WONDERFUL WESTERN TERRITORIAL RARITY.
This cover, overpaid by 9¢, was carried on the Hardyville Toll Road (Wooster M. Hardy postmaster) to Prescott, then by Santa Fe stage east and by rail to New York. From New York this sailed on the Cunarder Scotia, departing June 12, 1867, and arriving Queenstown June 21. This is the only recorded cover to Great Britain from Arizona Territory.
