Nevada Postal History


Here are postal cancellations from U. S. post offices in Nevada. The post offices are listed by county and may currently be active or discontinued. The cancellations are on postally canceled vintage postcards, envelopes, postal receipts, and philatelic covers. Generally up to five postmarks are shown for a particular post office, ususally the oldest in my collection.
