BibliographyThere isn't a great deal published about Delaware. It is covered in:
The Postal History of Maryland, The Delmarva Peninsula and D.C. by Smith and Kay
You can access my online guide of Delaware Post Offices here.
There aren't many Delaware covers around. Once, the little that exists was in strong demand. More recently, demand is down. Material remains scarce, so improvement can come very quickly.
Among the 50 states, the District of Columbia, R.P.O.'s and Streetcars, Delaware rates as the 23rd state in terms of percentage of covers sold at 54.41%. It ranks 53rd in terms of the value of covers sold as percentage of all town cancels sold at .30%. The overall rank is 44th. This is a ten year running average. The most recent trends are about the same.
