"These "Covers of the Day" are selected from my database of 150,000 covers that I have sold on ebay going back 22 years. Prices realized range from $3 to $2,000. (Prices realized will not be posted publicly, but Stamporama members may request via private message.)

Covers are selected like an Improv show ... audience shouts out a topic / country / theme and I'll see what I can show. I may provide a short description, but philatelic "write-up" contributions to the post will be welcome and will hopefully stir conversation and participation.

You are the audience ... shout away. Send a PM or post here."

Roy,

Nice. Cover from Cincinnati on 27 Sep to New York (1 Oct) and then to Neuenkirchen, Oldenburg, Germany (15 October?) via England (Ostend). You indicate this is from 1870. How did you determine that? The stamp (assuming it is a National S.150) was issued in May of 1870, so an 1870 date is certainly possible. I don't see an 1870 date on any of the CD stamps. I do see an 88 on one from New York. The American S.209 was issued in 1882. Not enough resolution in the image to say for sure.

Below are the markings, sized up a bit for a wee bit better view:

Firstly, I am sorry the resolution is not up to my current standards. This was early days (2005) and the rural area I was living in still did not offer high speed internet (much less fibre optic speeds) and I had to carefully ration image sizes or uploading several hundred pictures would take hours!

I see now where there might be doubt about my stated date, however it was not challenged at the time of sale (by auction, with multiple bidders). I was influenced by two details:

I interpreted this as a "70". I see now that it might be a "10" for October, without a year plug.

But I was also influenced by the small note in the lower left corner, clearly in a German hand that states "1870".

At least, if I was wrong, I wasn't alone!

The cover ended up going to Germany.
