Sale 1191, Lot 2370, Local PostsCalifornia City Letter Express Co., San Francisco, 10c Red (33L1). Unused (no gum), cut to shape with margins clear to just in, with adherence on back from an envelope

FINE. THIS IS ONE OF TWO UNUSED EXAMPLES OF THE CALIFORNIA CITY LETTER EXPRESS STAMP AVAILABLE TO COLLECTORS. FROM A NEW DISCOVERY.

Our records contain six examples of the Red 33L1 stamp. Two additional Type I stamps in black-and-white photos cannot be identified by color. One 33L1 (cut to shape) is contained in the British Library's Tapling collection. Of the four confirmed 33L1's available to collectors, two are used alone on separate covers addressed to Lieut. Col. J. H. Stearns in San Francisco (one ex Middendorf and Geisler, the other ex Wiltsee). The third is an uncancelled stamp off cover (ex Lilly, offered in our March 2017 auction Sale 1150, lot 1317). The fourth is used on cover with a U.S. 10c stamp (ex Lichtenstein, Caspary, Golden and Lyons). This new discovery becomes the sixth available to collectors.

With copy of 2018 P.F. certificate
