US Navy Seal

See USS Benham DD-397
Note: Red postmark dated 13-November-1942, Locy Type Pz(OXO) killer text "BENHAM / SUNK". Unfranked, cartoon bomb hitting Tojo with "FREE". Unaddressed. Blue thermographic (glossy raised print) Navy Seal cachet by George V. Sadworth. Reverse blank. Light age toning as shown in image. Good condition, flap open, no tears or damage. Provisional postmark not listed in USCS Catalog, estimated rarity R-3. Created from Bristol postmark T-3(A-OTO), middle letter of "U.S.S." removed at top of dial, ship name removed from bottom of dial, "NAVY" added to dial, middle killer bar removed. Very likely the killer text was a separate rubber-stamp.
