Sale 1150, Lot 1307, Carrier IssuesBrown & McGill's U.S.P.O. Despatch, (2c) Black (5LB3). Large margins, small corner repairs and light staining, blue Louisville circular datestamp at lower left

VERY FINE APPEARANCE. ONE OF THREE RECORDED GENUINELY CANCELLED EXAMPLES OF THE BROWN & McGILL'S BLACK CARRIER STAMP.

Our census contains 13 examples of 5LB3, including 10 uncancelled stamps, some (or all) of which were removed from pieces of covers, all dated in 1858. Two of the uncancelled stamps remain on their original covers with a 3c 1857 tied by the Louisville datestamp (Apr. 13 and Aug. 14, 1858 -- each with P.F. certificate). The stamp offered here, with two defective corners, was sold in the 1921 "German Sale" and subsequently repaired. A cancelled stamp tied on a Valentine cover (with 3c 1857 stamp removed) was offered in the Robert Laurence Nov. 15, 1940 sale of the L. B. Mason collection and recently reappeared in a Rumsey sale. Another on piece, ex Harbeck, Chapman, Caspary, Boker and Golden, was last offered in our 2009 Barry K. Schwartz Collection of Kentucky Postal History.

With 1978 P.F. certificate noting "some corner repairing and staining". Acquired by the current owner in a 1978 Kaufmann sale.

EXTREMELY FINE. THE FINER OF THE TWO RECORDED GENUINELY-CANCELLED EXAMPLES OF THE BROWN & McGILL BLACK CARRIER STAMP.

Our census contains 13 examples of 5LB3, including 10 uncancelled stamps, some (or all) of which were removed from pieces of covers, all dated in 1858. Two of the uncancelled stamps remain on their original covers with a 3c 1857 tied by the Louisville datestamp (Apr. 13 and Aug. 14, 1858 -- each with P.F. certificate). A cancelled stamp with two defective corners was sold in the 1921 "German Sale" and subsequently repaired; it was certified by the P.F. as having a counterfeit cancel and is not counted for the record. A cancelled stamp tied on a Valentine cover (with 3c 1857 stamp removed) was offered in the Robert Laurence Nov. 15, 1940 sale of the L. B. Mason collection and recently reappeared in a Rumsey sale. The piece offered here, according to a letter from Alfred H. Caspary, was originally in the C. T. Harbeck collection, then passed to C. E. Chapman, and from Chapman to Caspary, circa 1913.

Ex Harbeck, Chapman, Caspary, Boker and Golden. With 1999 P.F. certificate
