1864 Abraham Lincoln & Andrew Johnson 2nd Presidential Campaign Cover, Postally-Used, and with the Entire Union Party Platform Typeset in Print! (Walcott 229). Milgram AL-161. Fine.
Very scarce, 2nd Lincoln & Johnson Presidential Campaign Yellow Color wove period paper Envelope Cover, with decorative violet color boxed Caption at upper left, overall wildly typeset design printed in violet on its reverse side citing “UNION PARTY PLATFORM.”, with Postally-Used 3c (Scott-65) stamp. Cover has small faults, stamp is hand-stamp Bullseye Target tied on Cover to Ware, Mass. with Washington, D.C. Circular Date Stamp, small faults and top tiny edge split to cover. Cataloged by Dr. James Milgram as AL-161 in “Abraham Lincoln Illustrated Envelopes and Letter Paper 1860-1865”. The highly detailed Union Party Platform for the Republicans printed on the verso make this one of the more desirable Campaign Covers: “Vigorous and Just Taxation” resonates as much today as it did in 1864! Published by Lyon & Whittemore, NY, this is without question one of the better, detailed designs.
