In 1989 Robert J. Stets and Harvey S. Teal completed and published “South Carolina Postal History and Illustrated Catalog of Postmarks, 1760-1860.” Included in this work were six different postmarks and 14 different rate markings used by Camden postmasters during antebellum times. An illustration of them accompanies this article.
