Saturday Ship Cover: USS Boise (CL-47)

Saturday, March 27, 2010 12:00 PM


Welcome to the premiere installment of Saturday Ship Cover on The Naval History Blog. Each Saturday we will feature a different cover so please add us to your blogroll.

According to the Universal Ship Cancellation Society:

Originally, a “navy cover” was just a letter from a sailor, or even a postcard, with the postmark from the ship’s post office (Navy ships have had their own post offices since 1908). By the 1930’s collectors began sending their own envelopes, or “covers”, to ships for examples of these postmarks. Many have been decorated with designs called cachets, some of which are true works of art.

This week’s feature is the USS Boise (CL-47).

Note: The Navy Department Library is interested in accepting donations of US Navy and foreign navy ship postal covers to expand the collection.
