Dexter Matoon is unfortunately not on MexiMail. If you know his e-mail address, by all means invite him!
Please let me know if you can't read this.

I have seen them from Guaymas, Chihuahua, Magdelena and other towns. I am not an expert on Wells Fargo but I know there are more towns with the labels.  Hopefully a Wells Fargo expert will respond.  I may know more than I'm saying but anything further should be said by Peter or Dexter (Roberto ??)

Hello
 
If don't wrong the WF only was using his own postal stationery and not covers without publicity printed for WF. This labels used for WF are not common. But I don't know if exist label from other place that are not from Chihuahua.
 
Do you know something from this labels?

Additional comment.
No evidence of entering either the Mexican or US mails.
Did WF have an office in Chicago or, unlikely, a presence on the train to Chicago?
In this decade WF added US postage for local delivery in San Francisco and New York.

Unusual therefor desirable however mostly to a collector.
Note that the top bids were $85 higher than the 3rd bid.
This implies that it could have been a mano a mano even if they were unaware of the situation.
I look to the 3rd highest bid that is possibly closer to the true value if it was made by a knowledgable collector.
Don't overlook the condition of the item, poor but repairable (at a cost).
