Udakta was in Dutch Harbor in the city of Unalaska in the Aleutian Islands. Richard Helbock gave this cancel a rarity factor of "6." Adding to the interest is the straight line "HELD ON S. S. OHIO" in purple. An official mail route stopped at Dutch Harbor from May 15 to September 14. After that the postmaster would probably send the mail via a passing ship. Other "HELD ON S. S. OHIO" markings are known. Today this area is a major hub of the Aleutian Islands as it has an ice-free deep draft harbor.City: UdaktaCounty: Aleutians WestState: AKDate:
