Attempted illegal use of 2-cent USIR revenue stamp as postage on cover. Long out of period for the stamp, but some great markings on the cover, including two different 'HELD FOR POSTAGE' handstamps, including an interesting semicircular handstamp at top, and an 'UNCLAIMED' handstamp at bottom.

If you have any information or comments about this cancel or stamp, please email me.
