Picked this up recently for my Auxiliary Markings cover collection. Thought I would share it for your enjoyment.

It was missent by US POD officials to Paterson instead of Pittstown. The back of the cover is completely blank. Received postal markings were not required until 1879.

Cool cover! I love that they had to add a notation that Pittstown was near Center Bridge, no automated mail processing then. Trenton to Patterson is the length of NJ and took them two days. This cover no doubt traveled by train and horse drawn wagon. And that was a costly error for back then. The cover traveled at least 60 miles out of it's way!

The sender added the notation, but it still went to the wrong town!
