Sailor's Mail
 




PaulaCover, The Cover Connection on eBay sold this great sailor's mail cover on eBay. 
It is a cover sent home by Morris W Beck who joined the US Navy directly out of high school in 1944.

Covers from M W Beck's personal collection


 

Greg Ciesielski found this 1963 cover from the Roosevelt
and sent a scan us.

 
Mr. Beck sent numerous covers to ships for postmarks
for his personal collection. 
These are easy to spot because he preprinted his mailing address on the covers.

The cachet and return card on this cover was applied by
the ship and the cover was postmarked in Charleston,
SC.  Keep in mind that modern subs had rubber stamp
cachets but they didn't have a post office on board the sub. 
That is why you see sub covers postmarked at a
port or on another ship.

Dr. Ross Smith sent us scans of some Mercury covers
that have the printed address of Morris Beck.  We
believe that the cachet shown below was designed and
serviced by/for Donald Schultz.  We don't know for sure
if the US Navy had copies of the cachet rubber stamp to
apply to covers.


The Schultz cachet is on the back of the cover.  So
when was Schultz's cachet applied to the cover and
who applied it?

A good example of a cover
with Morris W Beck's address printed on the envelope.
This USS Intrepid is considered to be the
"Captain's Cover".

Steve Durst sent us this scan of a Mercury manned
space flight recovery cover with a printed address to
Morris Beck.  This cover has the ships rubber stamp
cachet.  Mr. Beck did not print a cachet for the
recovery ship, USS Kearsarge, but he did print cachets
for three secondary ships.

Two scans above are courtesy of Don Hensley

 






Some of these covers have Martin Longseth's name stamped on the reverse of the cover.
We believe that Martin stamped his name because the cover was in his collection at some time.
