Working for Victory

“Working for Victory” multicolor illustrated World War II patriotic cover posted from Richmond, Va on October 31, 1943 with 3 cent Win the War stamp.  Patriotic feelings were at an all time high during World War II and many styles of illustrated patriotic covers exist and all are very collectible.  Even the postmarks during this period were patriotic as this one touts to BUY WAR SAVINGS BONDS.  Patriotic covers have been printed for just about every war since the Civil War. They are very prolific throughout the Civil War, Spanish American War, WWI and WWII. This cover has 3 things going for it, patriotic design, patriotic cancellation, and patriotic stamp!
