Scott #U273 [1884 2 cent brown on white paper Washington (round O in TWO) envelope] Used with VF appearance on front. Backside with aging. From JAMAICA, NY, May 2, to NYC, with 1884 receiver. Very scarce envelope entire. (Scott 2015 $190 for entire.) The May 2, 1884, date is a month earlier than the "June 1884" date noted in stock. This may be an earliest known use? The die characteristics do match exactly with all features of Scott #U273 (image type U65) .

210 (defective) on January 25 1887 cover with manuscript cancellation "Cub Hill / Jan 25 1887" (Baltimore County). Very neat and attractive, with contents. Maryland postal history is popular and manuscript cancellations (i.e. from very small post offices) from this late date are unusual. With contents, a neatly written personal chatty letter.

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.

Group of about 130 VERMONT picture post cards, plus about 20 miniature view cards. Mostly 1906-1919, an original trove from a family archive -- these have never been in a dealer stock. The cards either picture Vermont views/subjects and/or are postmarked in Vermont -- thus these could be useful for multiple types of Vermont collections. Mixed mint and used, with quality generally very nice. Includes quite a few early real photo cards, one leather Vermont card, some local town views, a number of working granite quarries, etc. Quite a few of these cards would retail in the $3 to $6 range, with a few even higher. This would be a great way to start or expand a Vermont picture post card or Vermont postal history / postmark collection. A super deal that would be terrific for a collector or a dealer!

Scott #409 [1912 2c Carmine Washington, Type I] (VF) with Mailometer Type IV vending perforations, tied to January 23 1915 cover from St. Louis, Missouri to Norwalk, Ohio. The cover bears advertising front and back with the Shapleigh Hardware Company "Diamond Edge" trademark symbol. Stamp has adhesive marks in the left margin; I believe that this was a single from a paste-up and that the adhesive remains from the next stamp. (Scott 2019 $40.) Very attractive, with large margins and excellent perforations.
