Went to Batsto yesterday unfortunately the Guy who runs the Post Office had a stroke so it was closed, the envelope was purchased in the Gift Shop with the enclosure included. I had no idea they didn't have a zip code. Next time I'll call first.Image Not Found

Batsto cancels are fairly common since they are aimed at collectors and the pictorial cancels are done frequently. So I've checked this one off my list!

Still, since I'm using the NJ Postal Historical Society's book "New Jersey Postal History" as my guide, I do need a cover for the 1852-1870 and 1882-1911 periods to be complete. And I wouldn't mind an early cover from the current era, like a 1966 first day of post office cover.

I'm guessing that's Hammonton N.J. No one lives in Batsto

The cities below are at least partially located in ZIP code 08037. In addition to the primary city for a ZIP code, USPS also publishes a list of other acceptable cities that can be used with ZIP code 08037. However, if you are mailing something to ZIP code 08037, you should not use any of the cities listed as unacceptable. Choose from the primary or acceptable cities when mailing your package or letter.

Primary city:
Hammonton, NJ
Acceptable:
Batsto
Unacceptable:
Ancora, Blue Anchor, Braddock, Elm, Folsom, Nesco, Rosedale, Sweetwater
