Bouton’s City Dispatch Post

John Bouton established Bouton’s City Dispatch Post in early 1847.  He first operated out of 10 Spring Street, and later from 175 Bowery.  At the same time, he also operated Bouton’s Manhattan Express and the Franklin City Free Despatch Post.  In 1850 or 1851, Bouton sold the business to Swarts, who used his existing stamps, but erased or covered up the “Bouton’s” at the top.

Local Stamps Make a Neat Addition to Your Collection

Local stamps include stamps issued by Local Posts (city delivery), Independent Mail Routes and Services, Express Companies and other private posts that competed with or supplemented official services. Because only a few local posts used hand stamps for cancelling, most local stamps were left uncancelled. Cancelling, if any, was often done by pen, pencil, or government hand stamp.
