Item DescriptionThis is a nice drop rate piece of 1889 Indianapolis, Indiana, postal history featuring the popular 10c special delivery running messenger stamp, Scott #E1 -- the first preprinted special delviery stamp produced for the U.S. Postal Department. The stamp is tied to the cover with an Indianapolis CDS and killer oval bar with "3" in the center. The manuscript "232" is the registry number and the preprinted stamped envelope, #U313 (slightly trimmed at the right side), is cancelled with the same CDS with the manuscript addition of the time and year. The enclosure is a short note from a husband to his wife.
Please review the images of this philatelic classic Indiana cover. Generally, a nice tidy cover with a fresh stamp. Please study the images to determine condition as well as clarity, color, condition, cancel, and centering. Note, the reverse features pencil notations from a previous collector.
