Yeah! I finally found another regularly used postal item that fits the criteria for the calendar. And I don't think that an Irish Cancel has been posted before either.

Not a high quality stamp or cancel, but interesting in that the publisher had connections to Germany and the back side explains where a lot of our big trees went.

If you're interested in who the addressee was on the previously posted cover (David G. Evans & Co.) it was a coffee company in St. Louis.


Quote:
The firm of David G. Evans & Co. was founded in 1856 by David G. Evans under the style of Flint, Evans & Co., changed in 1870 to David G. Evans & Co. David G. Evans died in 1916, and the name of the company was changed in 1917, to the David G. Evans Coffee Co., with Gwynne Evans, a son of David G., as president of the corporation.


Based on the above quote the use of the name "David G. Evans & Co." was between 1870 to 1916 and since the embossed envelope wasn't issued until 1893, the date of the example shown would be from 1893 to 1916.

Here's a picture of Mr. David G. Evans:



Also, a photo of their coffee jar from the period:

As it is now January 15th, I thought I'd post this FD postal card (and stamp) which I didn't even realize I had until just yesterday (both Clippers):
