Servicemen and emblems of the Army, Coast Guard, Navy and Air Corps create the cachet on this cover postmarked Buffalo, New York, July 9, 1942. A two-cent United States Scott 900 is tied to the cover with the boxed slogan Buy Defense Savings Bonds and Stamps. Walter Poppenger of Akron, Ohio, published the cachet.
