Beck Event and Naval Covers 1943-1944  Page 1 of 3

Theodore Roosevelt, October 27, 1943 cover shown below is the earliest Morris W. Beck Cover in this collection.  It is considered to be his first event cover, but that is not certain.  If you have information regarding an earlier event cover produced by Morris W. Beck please contact Owen Murray.

Added November 14, 2008
 

2008 was the first time we saw this 1943 Morris W Beck cover he produced while in high school.  This is possibly his second cachet, but we don't know for sure.  His first cachet, that we are aware of is the Oct 27 1943, Teddy Roosevelt, Navy Day cover.  There is a red rubber stamp on the reverse of the cover with Beck's usual marking.  "Morris W. Beck" 
We asked Mr. Beck about his early covers and he has no written record of the early covers and can't specifically remember which ones he published.


Another example of his second cover postmarked at a different city.  Argonne, Wisconsin.

January 29, 1944-Hand Cancel


Reverse Marking 604 Ninth Street


This Ticonderoga Launching cover is likely to be a one-of-a-kind cover.  It is believed that this hand-made cover was created by Morris W. Beck.  The picture is cut from another source and affixed to the cover.  The text is hand printed.  The writing style is very consistent with Beck's other samples found on this site.  If you are aware of any other Beck hand-made covers please contact Owen Murray.
