FINE-APPEARING STAMP. ONE OF FIVE RECORDED EXAMPLES OF THE HONOUR'S 1849 OVAL STAMP ON BROWN-ROSE PAPER.

Our records compiled for the Golden sale have been corrected to reflect the fact that this stamp is on Brown Rose paper (4LB1), not Yellow (4LB2). We previously counted five Yellow and four Brown Rose, based on an old description of the stamp offered here. However, with the emergence of the Hall collection and the opportunity to examine this cover, we must now count four Yellow and five Brown Rose. The long sealed tear in this stamp and late use are sufficient reasons for us to think it has been added to the cover. Therefore, to revise our census, item 3 in our Yellow 4LB2 census (see Golden catalogue, lot 206) should be deleted. The Brown Rose 4LB1 list is amended as follows: 1) cut rectangular, in at top, used on Aug. 16, 1849 cover, ex Hind, Golden (realized $12,000 hammer); 2) cut to shape (brighter Pink paper), used with 10c 1847 on Jul. 14, 1849 cover, ex Hessel, Golden (realized $37,500); 3) cut rectangular, in at top, on piece dated Aug. 19, 1849, ex Worthington, Caspary, Boker, Golden (realized $9,000), 4) cut to shape, cancelled by red Charleston circular datestamp (June date, no year), minor faults, ex Middendorf; and 5) cut to shape, sealed tear, added to 1851 cover with Jan. 24 datestamp, Siegel Sale 164, the item offered here.

Despite the sealed tear, this is a very desirable example of one of the rarest carrier issues.

FINE. ONE OF FOUR RECORDED EXAMPLES OF THE HONOUR'S 1849 OVAL STAMP ON BROWN-ROSE PAPER, THREE OF WHICH ARE CUT RECTANGULAR.

Our records contain four examples of the Honour's 1849 oval-type carrier stamp on Brown Rose paper (Scott 4LB1): 1) cut rectangular, in at top, used on Aug. 16, 1849 cover, ex Hind, offered in lot 209; 2) cut to shape (brighter Pink paper), used with 10c 1847 on Jul. 14, 1849 cover, ex Hessel, offered in lot 210; 3) cut rectangular, in at top, on piece dated Aug. 19, 1849, ex Worthington, Caspary, Boker, the lot offered here; and 4) cut to shape, cancelled by red Charleston circular datestamp (June date, no year), minor faults, ex Middendorf.

Ex Worthington, Caspary and Boker. Scott values are quoted for rectangular-cut stamps unused ($4,000.00) and used ($2,500.00), and cut-to-shape used ($600.00). It seems to us that none of these values applies to this example.
