Rasdale Stamp Company has just announced one of the pieces that will be up for bid in their upcoming May 21-22 public auction. It is a J. Lindley Green 1904 Penalty Cover. The cover is from Rampart Alaska. This cover shows Judge Green's attempt to find a landowner by listening to the local buzz of the natives. The man's name was W. G. Strong and he could not be located. The Judge had difficulty finding Strong because of the rash of gold rushes that happened in that time frame. The area that Strong lived in was involved in the Klondike Gold Rush that happened between 1896 and 1899. After this rush was tapped out, everyone either moved on or followed the next gold rush to Nome, Alaska. The cover is a little rough and with the journey it has had, it is a spectacle to behold.
