VERY FINE STRIKE OF THE DESIRABLE ANDREW JOHNSON TOMBSTONE WITH SKULL FANCY CANCEL. VERY RARE USED ON A COVER.

Andrew Johnson assumed the presidency after the assassination of Lincoln in 1865. He was unable to secure the nomination for the 1868 election, partly because he had alienated many politicians and the public. This sentiment is reflected in the fancy cancel.

With 1994 P.S.E. certificate
