Worden Cover


Superintendent of Stamps Michael Eidsness, representing the Post Office Department, presided over the First Day ceremony for the new Hayes stamp at Fremont, Ohio. Just prior to the ceremony, he had the Fremont Post Office service at least five FDCs, including the above cover to dealer Edward C. Worden. Eidsness and Worden had become good friends in July when a new special delivery stamp (Scott E12) had been released in Washington, DC. Even though Worden had several Hayes FDCs serviced at Washington, he overlooked the significance of the Fremont FDC and had none of his own covers serviced at Fremont.
