This is kind of a neat registered ad cover from Opello? Arkansas. I don't have a listing for this town. It must be a DPO, but it is not in my listing. There could be part of the name missing, but the strike is pretty good. I would like help identifying and finding the scarcity of it.

It might be Opello, Arkansas. (Although I just noticed the difference in spelling).

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oppelo,_Arkansas

I can't turn this into a link, because the Discussion Board chokes on an extra comma in the link (and won't accept an HTML entity replacement).

You will have to copy and paste.

An Oppelo Post Office was open in Perry County from 1867 until 1878 and carries a rarity factor of 7 in Helbock. Also existed in Conway County between 1880 and 1913 with a rarity factor of 4.

That is a very nice cover, particularly with the 10 cent rate.

For value search Ebay for rarity factor 4.

Thanks Guys,
It looks like it is just a different spelling for Opelo.
