Ample margins to just in, partly clear impression on deep green paper, uncancelled but appears to have originated with 3c Dull Red (11), large margins to just touched, tied by "New-York May 27" circular datestamp on small cover to Prattsburgh N.Y., ca. 1855 usage

EXTREMELY FINE. THE BOYCE'S CITY EXPRESS POST STAMP IS EXTREMELY RARE, WITH PERHAPS EIGHT TO TEN KNOWN ON COVERS AND ANOTHER FOUR OR FIVE OFF COVER.

Very little is known about Boyce's City Express Post. Nothing in the city directories ties any particular Boyce to the post, nor are there advertisements or source material to identify the proprietor.

Covers are dated from December 1852 through June 1856, a wide time span for a post with such rare stamps. The most reliably-dated example is the ex-Boker cover to Germany, sent by the Ocean Line steamship Washington, with a New York Jun. 14 debit datestamp tying the Boyce's stamp. Based on sailing dates in 1852 through 1856, the June 14th departure must be 1856 -- the markings on the cover and sender's ship-name designation corroborate the Washington on this date. It is worth noting that four Boyce stamps (on and off covers) are cancelled by New York debit datestamps for foreign-mail usage.

With 2000 P.F. certificate stating "Genuine Scott 19L1" but declining opinion as to usage. Ex Ferrary, Mason and Ackerman.
