Description:

1874 3c green Plimpton Issue postal entire (U163) with "Dansville N.Y. Nov. 29" cds and target cancel to street address in Chicago, Blue "Chicago Ill. Carrier 6 AM Dec 1" backstamp, forwarded to Algona, Iowa, blue "Due 3" 21mm circular handstamp.

The blue Chicago Carrier cds is Piszkiewicz type CAR-3, with known dates of use Nov. 2, 1874 to Dec. 27, 1876. The blue "Due 3" marking from Chicago is Piszkiewicz type DU-21 with known dates of use Oct. 7, 1873 to Feb. 23, 1875. Thus this cover is likely from 1874 which makes sense since this 3c Plimpton Issue postal entire was issued starting on Oct. 21, 1874.
