1263 c Image12c Black (69). Used with 1c Blue (63) and 2c Black (73), tied by circle of wedges cancels and red "N. York Hamb. Pkt. Paid 12 Feb. 12" (1863) credit datestamp on red and blue Waving Flag, Odd Fellows, House and Slogan Patriotic cover to Vienna, Austria, from the Angell correspondence, slogan reads "My God first, my Country next and then my Family", Magee imprint, neat "FRANCO" handstamp at lower left, Hamburg and receiving backstamps, 2c with two small tears, 1c small stain at top right

VERY FINE APPEARANCE. A COLORFUL AND RARE PATRIOTIC DESIGN WITH AN ODD FELLOWS THEME, USED TO VIENNA, AUSTRIA. FROM THE FAMOUS ANGELL CORRESPONDENCE.

The Odd Fellows was a secret fraternity, separate from the Masons. The three links in the symbol stand for its motto of "Friendship, Love and Truth". In 1851 it became the first fraternal organization to accept women (the Daughters of Rebekah). This effort was spearheaded by Schuyler Colfax, who would later serve as Grant's Vice President.

Dr. Henry C. Angell was an optometrist who spent a considerable amount of time in Europe. Covers are known sent to him in France, Italy, England, Germany and Austria, plus a very few forwarded to other destinations. He was an art collector and undoubtedly appreciated the wide variety of Civil War patriotic envelopes mailed to him while he travelled abroad.

1266 c Image10c Yellow Green (68). Used with 5c Brown (76), each cancelled by Union Soldier's Head fancy cancel (clear strike on 10c) on yellow cover to Temosvar, Hungary, sender's directive "Via Bremen by Steamer 'Hansa'", light strike of red "N. York Bremen Pkt. Paid 12 Apr. 21" (1866) credit datestamp, blue "America uber Bremen Franco" transit handstamp, receiving backstamp, few small filing holes far from stamps

FINE. AN EXTREMELY RARE USE OF THE UNION SOLDIER'S HEAD FANCY CANCELLATION ON A COVER TO HUNGARY.

This is reportedly the only known cover to Hungary with this fancy cancel. This cancel's creation and use in 1866 coincided with the return of soldiers from the Civil War. It is known on at least one domestic cover, but apparently the cancelling device migrated to the foreign-mail exchange office, where it was used to cancel stamps on mail to foreign countries. This explains why it is found on high values of the 1861-66 Issue, including the 10c, 12c, 15c, 24c, 30c and 90c denomination stamps off cover. Covers with this cancel are very rare, probably because European stamp collectors removed the high-value stamps from covers.
