Scott #1b [1847 5c Orange Brown Franklin] VF, with four full margins, three of which are large, on folded letter with very neat red grid cancellation that ties the stamp to the folded letter. Attractive red "CUYAHOGA FALLS O." (Ohio) May 14 (4 is in manuscript) postmark. To Bucyrus, Cranford County, Ohio. Accompanied by 2016 Philatelic Foundation certificate stating that the stamp is tied and that the use is genuine. No defects. The letter discusses insurance matters. This attractive example would sell for about as much off cover! (Scott 2017 $850 for on-cover and $750 off cover.)

United States 1860s-1945 Covers and Cards with Target Cancels Collection: 1860s-1945 collection of about 55 covers and cards, on cover pages, selected for a wide range of target (rings) killer cancellations. Mostly 19th century, plus three later registered covers (including a 1914 registered cover which also bears "return to writer" pointing hands handstamps). Many different states and many small towns such as Burnt Prairie, Ill.; Xenia, Ohio; Center Sandwich, N.H.; violet Frankfort, Mich.; nice violet Trebeins, Ohio on #U349, etc. One card also has a nice blue Chicago Carrier transit marking. Quality varies, but mostly F-VF or better, with many VF. An average of about $2.70 per item though many of these would sell individually for much more. Overall a very nice and interesting selection of target postmarks that would be fun to build upon. Shipping cost is additional for this item.

Scott #210 [1883 2c Red Brown Washington] extremely damaged on 16 January 1887 cover from the "House of Representatives U.S." containing a complete handwritten letter from U.S. Representative (from New York 15th district) Henry Bacon to H.W. Chadeaque of Cornwall, New York. The Washington postmark is likely of a type used for Congressional mail. The reverse of the envelope bears a fancy scalloped blue oval receiving postmark "CORNWALL / Orange Co., N.Y. / Rec. JAN 17". The letter appears to be addressing a complaint from a constituent in regard to postal matters, apparently unsatisfactory mail carrier service. The letter is signed by Henry Bacon -- the signature matches known examples. There is a discoloration in the corner containing the signature (and the envelope was affected also), however, online autograph dealers offer this signature (undated, not on a full letter) at $170! The primary value is that of the autograph, however, the receiver postmark may be scarce as well.
