American Indian stamp hails from Omaha, Nebraska

In January, I shared an image of a 14¢ American Indian cover postmarked at Cheyenne Agency, South Dakota. That envelope celebrated the Lewis and Clark Expedition’s arrival in that area in 1804.

This month, I’m excited to share another cover commemorating the 130th anniversary of the Lewis and Clark Expedition. This envelope was postmarked in Omaha, Nebraska, in August 1934.

Like the cover I posted previously, this one is addressed to a collector in Meredith, New Hampshire. I don’t know if he commissioned the cachets himself or if he was merely a subscriber, but for the sake of my 14¢ American Indian collection, I’m glad he preserved these philatelic solo uses of the stamp for our enjoyment.
