388 Scotts - earliest known stamp on cover US stamps

Bell & Co were the makers of stomach medicines. An example of their product is shown above. The company did a mass mailing to doctors and ordered the
3c coil stamp for the purpose. As it happens this was the one and only time the post office issued the 3c coil, hence making the stamps on the Bell and Co's
envelopes very desirable to own. As the contents of the envelope was promoational material almost all doctors did what you and I would do with junk mail,
it went straight into the trash can. Making the surviving covers ever more rare and valuable.
