Lot Of 5 Ca1899 Spanish American War Illustrated Patriotic Covers / Envelopes For Sale

Lot Of 5 Ca1899 Spanish American War Illustrated Patriotic Covers / Envelopes

Lot of 5 very rare and original, ca1899, Spanish American War Illustrated Patriotic Envelopes / Covers that were made specifically for Soldier's Mail. While we have handled hundred's, if not thousands, of Civil War Patriotic Covers over the past 33+ years, we have never before seen the same types of Covers from the Spanish American War. With some cursory internet research, we discovered that these Span-Am War Envelops are significantly rarer that their Civil War Counterparts. While it is estimated that there were approx 11,000 to 12,000 different Civil War Patriotic Cover published, only about 600 to 700 different designs were produced during the later conflict. Add to that the short duration of the War and the limited number of American Troops deployed and it is quite obvious why these Envelopes are so rare.


Each of these fantastic, unused Spanish American War Covers measure approx. 6 1/2" by 3 3/8" and each features a different image (some with associated text) at the left hand side or the upper left hand corner. We have included images of all 6 Covers below and will refrain from describing each but if anyone has questions regarding the content or condition with an individual piece, please feel free to contact us. Below each of the images is a part printed form where a soldier sending the letter could fill in his return address in the field or in training camp. Most have printed lines for his name, his "Camp", his "Company" and his "Regiment".


These rare and wonderful, ca1899 Spanish American War, Illustrated Patriotic Covers are all in very good to excellent condition with some light and uniform age toning but otherwise clean and crisp with no damage or repairs of any kind except for a small corner chip to one of the Envelopes. All five are the entire Envelope and include both the front and back panels and the original flap closure!!


A Lot of 5 very rare and wonderful, ca1899, Spanish American War Illustrated Patriotic Envelopes / Covers that was made specifically for Soldier's Mail and a fantastic addition to any collection!!!

Important Notes about Shipping Charges:

The amount quoted for Shipping & Handling is calculated by and is equal to the EXACT amount charged by the Post Office plus a $1.00 "packing fee" - the $1.00 fee is our only compensation for the virgin packing materials we use on all of our professionally packaged boxes as well as our cost for the salaried help that does most of our packing - as I am sure you can see, we make NO profit on the Shipping charges and, in fact, our costs are usually greater than the $1.00 fee. Please contact us if there are any issues regarding the cost of shipping.
