Four new covers for my 14¢ American Indian collection
If you’ve been following my blog for any time at all, you know I’ve been pursuing on-cover solo examples of the 14¢ American Indian stamp for several years now. It’s nearly impossible to find commercial solo usages of the stamp, and even philatelic solo usages are tough to track down.
In spite of that, I’ve had the opportunity to acquire half a dozen 14¢ American Indian philatelic solo uses this year: one postmarked at Cheyenne Agency, South Dakota, one postmarked in Omaha, Nebraska, and the four additional examples pictured here.
As you can see, three of these covers (along with the prior two I mentioned) are part of a run all addressed to one Sedley Bartlett of Meredith, New Hampshire. The final cover is something of an oddball; a previous owner physically removed the section of the cover that would have carried the mailing address, so it’s impossible to say who the intended recipient was.
It’s very unusual for me to get to add so much material to my collection in such a short period of time, but I’m happy to have had the opportunity to do so. This is fun stuff!
