14¢ American Indian covers sent to casket, tire companies

As part of my continuing efforts to get my collection of 14¢ American Indian stamps properly sorted and written up, I’ve added a couple of items to my online exhibit over the past week and a half.

The first of these is an air mail special delivery envelope mailed to the Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company in 1937. The cover made it from Los Angeles to Akron, Ohio, the next day. Priority Express Mail today could hardly do better!

The second item is a solo use of the 14¢ American Indian stamp on a cover mailed to the St. Paul Casket Company of Saint Paul, Minnesota, in 1938. In my opinion, this cover despite the address is probably philatelic in nature, or at least philatelically-inspired, but what do you think?

I still have a few more covers to write up as time permits, after which I would like to properly sort out the loose copies of this stamp that I have. We’ll see how things go.
