Naval Covers

This section lists active links to the pages displaying covers associated with the ship. There should be a separate set of pages for each incarnation of the ship (ie, for each entry in the "Ship Name and Designation History" section). Covers should be presented in chronological order (or as best as can be determined).

Since a ship may have many covers, they may be split among many pages so it doesn't take forever for the pages to load. Each page link should be accompanied by a date range for covers on that page.

Postmarks

This section lists examples of the postmarks used by the ship. There should be a separate set of postmarks for each incarnation of the ship (ie, for each entry in the "Ship Name and Designation History" section). Within each set, the postmarks should be listed in order of their classification type. If more than one postmark has the same classification, then they should be further sorted by date of earliest known usage.

A postmark should not be included unless accompanied by a close-up image and/or an image of a cover showing that postmark. Date ranges MUST be based ONLY ON COVERS IN THE MUSEUM and are expected to change as more covers are added.
 
>>> If you have a better example for any of the postmarks, please feel free to replace the existing example.

NAMESAKE - Rear Admiral Augustus Ludlow Case, USN (3 February 1812 – 16 February 1893)
Case was appointed midshipman in 1828. He participated in the Wilkes Expedition of 1837–1842 which explored the South Seas and discovered the Antarctic Continent. During the Mexican–American War, he held the town of Palisada with 25 men against the Mexican cavalry for two weeks to block the escape of General Santa Ana. He also participated in the Paraguay expedition of 1859. In the Civil War he was Fleet Captain of the North Atlantic Blockading Squadron in its capture of Forts Clark and Hatteras in August 1861, and commanded USS Iroquois in the blockade of New Inlet, North Carolina. From 1869 to 1873 he was Chief of the Bureau of Ordnance, attaining the rank of Rear Admiral on May 24, 1872. From 1873 to 1875, he commanded the European Squadron, and the combined European, North and South Atlantic Squadrons assembled at Key West in 1874. Admiral Case retired in 1875.

Two ships of the US Navy have been named in his honor - USS Case DD-285 and USS Case DD-370.
