About this Item

Minnesota's 28th governor (1952-55) had already served a record-setting 11 years as lieutenant governor starting at the record-setting age of 26! Signed First Day Cover, 6½" X 3½", cancelled at Fort Snelling, Minnesota on October 17, 1970 and with "First Day of Issue" noted. Near fine. Single 6-cent "Great Northwest Fort Snelling 1820 1970" stamp at upper right. No decorative cachet at left; no distracting recipient's name/address. Just at the left of the "sweet spot," Anderson signs boldly in blue ballpoint. Anderson chaired the Fort Snelling Sesquicentennial Commission and spearheaded efforts to preserve and restore this site, thus his signature on this cover is especially relevant. Small portion of original transmittal envelope present. A printed Department of the Army "stuffer" enclosed notes that "This envelope, existing in limited edition, is probably unique in postal history," for a Post Office was created in Fort Snelling for one day only solely to issue and cancel this particular stamp.
