Mexican commercial cover

#1

Post by TheCoverCollector »

Here's an advertising cover from my Commercial Covers Collection from Tasco, Guerrero, the silver mining capital of Mexico. Some even say the town is built on a mountain of silver. I acquired this cover for its colorful illustration along the bottom half of the envelop. The three-story building at lower left must be the Hotel Melendez. As with so many Mexican covers, the postmark is smudged, but the date is readable with magnification. It was posted Oct 30, 1945. The cover is franked with a common 12 centavos stamp of 1945, Sc. 790.
