WWII Patriotic Covers: Military Base & APO Cancels

        On this page you will find 110 covers with military base or APO cancels. The majority of them are from four collections. The collection of Mrs. E. Kropper of Milford, CT contains many early (1941-42) covers, mostly with the generic "Military Cancel" drawn cachet by George Neumann and serviced by Bruce Woodbury. The cachet isn't very exciting, but the cancels are mostly dated before the US entered the war.
          Another collection with the Military Cancel cachet is that of Gordon Woodrow of Gravenhurst, Ontario. These also have early dates, generally from 1942 and early 1943. Some carry censor stamps or tape.
        The third collection is that of Emil Brocker of Van Dyke, MI and consits of cachets by Walter Crosby serviced by Edwin Haworth. Many of these are cancelled on the first day of operation of a base.
        The fourth and smallest collection is that of Henry Powers, Jr. of Winchendon, CT, which is mainly covers by Glen Osborn with the name of the base as part of the cachet. These were made in very small quantities and all cancelled well before the US entered the war.
        Prices are way under dealer prices and considerably under those in postal history auctions. All covers will be sent by first class or Priority Mail. You, the buyer, pay only the exact postage plus 50c per order for packaging and handling.
