Sale Number 1179, Lot Number 2643, Carriers and Locals: Local Posts, continuedWalton & Co.'s City Express, Brooklyn N.Y., 2c Black on Pink Glazed (142L1), Walton & Co.'s City Express, Brooklyn N.Y., 2c Black on Pink Glazed (142L1)Walton & Co.'s City Express, Brooklyn N.Y., 2c Black on Pink Glazed (142L1).

VERY FINE. AN RARE USE OF THE WALTON & CO. 2-CENT BLACK ON PINK GLAZED ON COVER.

John T. Boyd discontinued his Brooklyn post on June 30, 1845, when the new postal laws made it illegal for private companies to carry mail along postal routes -- in Boyd's case, between Brooklyn and New York City. Elliott Perry suggested that Boyd's Brooklyn agent was Wellington Walton, who is listed in the 1846 city directory as an "express proprietor" at 195 Gold Street in Brooklyn. Walton & Co. City Express covers are dated as early as February 14, 1846 (see Golden collection, Siegel Sale 817, lot 1572), leaving a seven-month gap between Boyd's discontinuance and Walton's successor post -- possibly Walton did not start up until the next Valentine season. In early 1847, Walton sold out to Henry Kidder, whose "Kidder's Brooklyn City Express Post" oval handstamp is recorded as early as Mar. 11, 1847 (reference: Calvet M. Hahn, "Brooklyn City Post 1850's").

Our records contain only eight Walton & Co. 142L1 covers, including one postmarked at New Haven Conn., Sep. 28, 1846, which almost certainly is not a genuine usage. This is the latest genuine usage from the eight recorded.

With 2009 P.F. certificate
