Unique Hussey’s Time Posted Label Stamps

 
Created in 1865 – Over 150 Years Ago!
 
These “stamps” were created by George Tuttle Hussey – an entrepreneur from NYC.  The sender would affix it to his envelope, mark the hour he sent it, and fill in the date of mailing.  This showed the recipient the exact hour and day it was mailed.  If it didn't arrive on time, the blame could be placed on the right person.  It served as a way to monitor the postman, the post office clerk, and the recipient.  Get this fascinating postal history in your collection
