"Update to the 3rd volume of the American Stampless Cover Catalog" In 1993, David G. Phillips of Miami, Florida, published the third volume to the very important reference on stampless covers. One of the sections was "The Electric Medium ... Stampless Telegraph Cover Catalog" prepared by Robert Dalton Harris. Since that time, both Mr. Harris and other telegraph cover collectors have been looking for other cover designs to add to the listing. Steven Prigozy has gathered these and presents them here for reference.
