March 2018 Society Auction
Lot 116. Post Card. Port au Prince (30 November 1905) paid with #96-97. Color cachet of
H. & A. Stecher, a Forwarding Agent in Port au Prince. The card was apparently misrouted.
Despite being posted to an address in Proskau, Germany (where it ultimately received a receiving cancel on 25 December 1905), it bears a postmark of 'CHI. & KANS CITY / R.P.O.' (9 December 1905). This cancel was applied during transit of the card and is from the Chicago & Kansas City Railway Post Office, probably when the misrouting was discovered and corrected by forwarding the card on to its intended destination.
A very interesting item in Fine condition.
