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.

No chocolate, no flowers, bling or fine wine... but SCF has won my affection and gratitude. Happy Valentine's everyone.

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:
