VERY FINE. AN EXTREMELY RARE AND TRULY REMARKABLE TIED EXAMPLE OF THE HOPEDALE PENNY POST STAMP, WHICH WAS USUALLY LEFT UNCANCELLED. VERY FEW TIED USES ARE KNOWN.

The Hopedale religious community established its Penny Post in 1849, so that mail could be brought to the nearest post office at Milford on a regular basis--it is similar in concept to the Glen Haven post--this was not an illegal service designed to circumvent government mails, but was a supplemental post in the absence of a community post office. The small stamps used to prepay the local charge were never cancelled and usually affixed on back or in the corner opposite the stamp. In rare instances the local stamp was positioned near the 3c postage and was tied by the town postmark. A survey of auction catalogues and our photo files turned up only three tied uses with any of the Hopedale stamps--this the only such use with the 84L1 stamp.

Ex Hall. With clear 2001 P.F. certificate
