Barr’s Penny Dispatch

Elias Barr established Barr’s Penny Dispatch in 1855 in Lancaster, Pennsylvania.  Barr charged 1¢ per parcel to deliver letters to and from the post office.  He sold his stamps at the Zahm and Jackson jewelry store and had boxes throughout the town where people could drop off their letters.

Local Stamps Make a Neat Addition to Your Collection

Local stamps include stamps issued by Local Posts (city delivery), Independent Mail Routes and Services, Express Companies and other private posts that competed with or supplemented official services. Because only a few local posts used hand stamps for cancelling, most local stamps were left uncancelled. Cancelling, if any, was often done by pen, pencil, or government hand stamp.
