Description:

Greenhood & Neubauer Northern Express Paid printed frank on 1864 3c pink on buff postal entire (U59), oval grid cancel, with "Weaverville Cal. Feb 12" circular datestamp, to Yreka, Siskiyou County, Cal.

Herman Greenhood and Joseph Newbauer began their express, based in Weaverville in late 1856. After the purchase of W.F. Rowe Express in 1858, the company connected with Wells Fago at Marysville. The company's banking and express business failed in August 1867. The stage routes were taken over by Grant I. Taggart's Stage operation after that date.

Because this cover has no company handstamp marking, it is believed that this was a surplus envelope used for mailing, not an express use. Not listed in census by Thomas.

For a true express use by this company, see Cover ID 19700.
