"Langton's Pioneer Express, Forest City", choice strike of blue oval handstamp on 3c red on buff Nesbitt entire (#U10) to Noisy Carriers in San Francisco, ornamental company printed  frank (Thomas LAN-008), one of the finest of three recorded examples of this Forest City handstamp.

In 1857 Langton began connecting with Wells, Fargo at Marysville for delivery to San Francisco, so this cover predates that time.
