All the stamps from post 26 to 58 were legitimate stamps to be used by the postal system of the issuing country. The following stamp was a local unauthorized issue from Daretown, New Jersey. The Cadillac Local Post started in 1953. Apparently, when the service began, the mail was carried in a 1952 Cadillac Coupe Deville over a 60-mile route starting and ending at Wildwood, N.J., on Cape May."
