c.1887 Lone Star Shirt Company Advertising Envelope

Advertising envelope from the Lone Star Shirt Company in Chicago, Illinois. The envelope is canceled with a "Chicago" stamp but does not have a date of cancelation. I put the piece around 1887 because of the one cent Benjamin Franklin stamp. It appears to be a Scott #212 which was issued in July of 1887.
