Título: Signed First Day Cover.

Ejemplar firmado: Signed by Author(s)


This legendary steamboat captain -- one of the last -- commanded the "Delta Queen" when it was the last operating steamboat in the country in the 1960s and served briefly as master of the "Mississippi Queen"; he's remembered for the 1947 fire aboard the "Island Queen" when he saved Captain Jim Baker's life, suffering severe burns himself, and for his role in ensuring the survival of Mississippi steamboats and in mentoring a new generation of steamboat captains. Signed First Day Cover, 6½" X 3½", cancelled in Little Rock, Arkansas on 1 October 1968 and with "First Day of Issue" boldly stamped. Single 6-cent "Arkansas River Navigation" stamp at upper right. Fine. No decorative cachet at left, but this cover bears a special circular "Delta Queen" cancellation at upper left, which notes around its rim, "1926 Steamboat 1970 Cincinnati, Ohio." This cover was never addressed, but bears Wagner's bold, large (5½") signature in blue ballpoint across the "sweet spot." Accompanied by the original transmittal envelope (which likewise bears the Delta Queen cancellation recto and verso) and a 5½" X 3½" color picture postcard of the Delta Queen. Uncommon.
