June 3, 1890 – earliest known use of a Special Delivery stamp on a wrapper? Fayette Mayer of Johnstown, New York, was a member of the Jewish Publication Society of America and there were other prominent members in Northville, NY. Most likely copies/samples of Society publications. It is not clear whether this was a transient 2nd class (1c per 4 oz) or 3rd class (1c per 2 oz) usage, but either way it must have been heavy.
