1864 Colorful Postally Used Abraham Lincoln & Andrew Johnson Jugate Presidential Campaign Cover M. AL-157
1864 Presidential Abraham Lincoln & Andrew Johnson Jugate Campaign Cover, Printed in Colorful Red & Blue, Postally Used, “Union Standard Bearers for 1864.” Legend, Milgram AL-157, Fine.
Ornate and Colorful, printed in red and blue on of-white wove paper Envelope. Nashville, TN Postmark, 3c (Scott-65) tied to this cover with bulls-eye black hand-stamp cancel, even toning with wear and slight loss to edges, short at right, sent to Ohio, quite uncommon. Cataloged by Dr. James Milgram as AL-157 in Abraham Lincoln Illustrated Envelopes and Letter Paper 1860-1865, by Gates and Gamble of Cincinnati. The graphics are fabulous: crossed red and blue flags, scrolls detailed “Amnesty” and “Emancipation” together with a book of laws and the Constitution, the legend proclaims Lincoln and Johnson as the “Union Standard Bearers for 1864.” Despite rough worn slightly chipped edges and minor faults, this historic Abraham Lincoln & Andrew Johnson Jugate Presidential Campaign Cover is extremely desirable, as postally-used examples of this cover are seldom encountered.
