1857 issue 1c blue Type V (#24) tied by octagonal "U.S. P.O. Despatch Phila. Dec. 15 2-1/2 PM" carrier postmark, with additional strike, on local cover with street address.

This octagonal carrier marking is recorded used from May 1860 to April 1862, making this example most likely a 1860 use, as the 1c stamp was demonetized in Philadelphia at the end of August 1861.
