Us Wwii Honolulu Pearl Harbor Attack Cover December 7 1941 Rare Cancel 12 07 41 For Sale

US WWII HONOLULU PEARL HARBOR ATTACK COVER DECEMBER 7 1941 RARE CANCEL 12 07 41 Exceedingly RARE US Christmas Card from Hawaii to Oregon, USA that has 12/07/41 cancel at 0900 Hours. Of course everybody knows of the Attack on the United States by the forces of Imperial Japan. On the morning of Sunday, December the 7th at 0748 Hours local time-the First wave led by Commander Mitsuo Fuchida attacked Pearl Harbor, Ford Island, Wheeler Field and Hickam Field with random strafing attacks reported in the general area. The second wave was led by Lt. Commander Shigekazu Shimazaki with the main force directed for Pearl Harbor proper and a return to Ford Island, Hickam Field, Wheeler Field Barber's point / Kaneohe. Ninety minutes after it began (07:48Hrs) the attack ended at roughly (09:30Hrs). 2,386 Americans died in the attack-including about 70 civilians, mostly from US anti-aircraft rounds landing in residental areas of Honolulu. During the second wave attack, the cancel would have fallen on this envelope at the Honolulu main postal facility. The historic value of this cover and contents is beyond value. It stands suspended in time, an eternal reminder of the begining of the war for the United States. A war that compared to other's losses-would be tragic for America, but nowhere near the losses of enemy nations (Japan and Germany) or even allied nations(Russian losses are generally agreed at in excess of 20 Million dead). But for the US it was the loss of innocence and being forever cast as an empire state from this date on. The US would have to take the lead in nation rebuilding and development. The construction of a United Nations with stake holder states and the only recorded use of Nuclear weapons would all come out of that date and window of time. The card is censor marked and as an after thought, the reciever mentions it did not get to them until January of 1942 (no doubt due to censor delay). It is unsealed, as it should be-for the postage rate in effect at the time states that unsealed cards may be sent for the 1.5 cent stamp rate. Included with the card/cover is another commercial cover from the Hawaii Chinese Journal with a cancel from Nov 15, 1941 on the SAME machine (for the conspiracy buffs who take everybody else's things apart except their own!) for comparison/collecting purposes. The interior contents are a simple signed Christmas card of Hawaiian theme. 100% original and after this examination and presentation-if authenticity is in A N Y way a concern, please take your business elsewhere. Meanwhile thank you for looking over a true museum grade postal item. Every bit worthy of the Smithsonian or USPS holdings, which by the way ALSO have a 12/07/41 0800 Hours cancel in their holdings.
