1865 Abraham Lincoln Memorial Postally-Used Cover “The Nation Mourns, It’s Chief Has Fallen” Milgram AL-372
1865 Abraham Lincoln Memorial Postally-Used Illustrated Envelope Cover, “The Nation Mourns, It’s Chief Has Fallen.” Walcott 230. Milgram AL-372. Very Fine.
A scarce Postally-Used Illustrated Envelope, with verse & Abraham Lincoln portrait printed in deep black, 3c (Scott-65), small flaw, not tied on cover to Washington, D.C. with Bullseye target & Camden, N.J. Cancel Date Stamps. Slightly reduced when opened at right, otherwise a full Cover. Cataloged by Dr. James Milgram in “Abraham Lincoln Illustrated Envelopes and Letter Paper 1860-1865” as M. AL-372, this is widely considered one of the best “Mourning” covers, being bold, elegant, and well-designed. This is a lovely specimen!
