Hi Everyone;

That is just about the neatest cover I've ever seen, and I don't even collect covers. I would have a difficult time selling that. I would price it so high that nobody would want it and I could keep.

I have a Mexican Peso from 1901 in very good gently circulated condition and something about it, made me list it for several hundred dollars, knowing that nobody would ever pay that much for a coin only worth about $50-60.

Thanks for showing it for us Roy

Roy,
That's certainly a great cover and a wonderful story to go with it. I'm not sure what the Caloosahatchee river was like back in the 1870's or so, but there are now three locks between Lake Okeechobee and Ft. Myers to help with maintaining the water level of Lake Okeechobee. Plus they channelized the river to help maintain the flow of the water, which is probably much tamer now than when Acrefoot was swimming it.

Punta Gorda is just 25 miles North of Ft. Myers and Port Charlotte is just across the Peace river from that. Port Charlotte's stamp club disbanded a few years ago, but a lot of their members have since joined the Cape Coral stamp club.

Wonderful Roy, just excellent stuff. Could it be that the legend of "Bigfoot" has just been uncovered? Just saying, mind you-just saying.
Best,
Dan C.

One more reason to the several thousand reason why I collect all sorts of covers.
Thanks, Roy.
