Accompanied by an ANS, 2pp, heavy stock 7¼" X 3 3/4" engraved correspondence card, New Orleans, LA, 1970 May 22. Addressed to Paul Johnston. Nice content to an admirer: "It was most interesting to hear from you about 'my stamp.' The Medallic Art Co who struck the Sesquicentennial of the Battle of New Orleans medal told me it was the 1st time a medal was used on a US stamp. A splendid collection of the Battle material has just been opened to the public." Small portion of original transmittal envelope also present. A fine and unusual pair. Bookseller Inventory # 25215
