Auxiliary handstamp, MOVED
Postal clerks use 'Pointing Hand' rubber stamps to endorse a mail piece returned to the sender. The auxiliary stamp explains why the item could not be delivered. These marking devices were produced by a variety of manufacturers for the Post Office Department and Postal Service under ordering agreements. This style of marking device is typical of those used between the 1930s and today.
This type of handstamp is used all over the United States, but this particular stamp is also a part of a tragic event in American history. This handstamp was collected from the World Trade Center mail sorting station on the fourth floor of the Church Street Station Post Office, New York City. The stamp was last used on September 11, 2001, the day of the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center.
