Sale Number 1211, Lot Number 366, Carrier and Local Post Issues, The finest recorded example of the rare Kellogg's Penny Post & City Despatch Issue, tied on cover by two different handstamps

Kellogg's Penny Post & City Despatch, Cleveland, Ohio, (1¢) Vermilion (92L1), large margins, brilliant color, used with 3¢ Dull Red, Type II (11A), margins all around, small bend/crease at top right, both stamps tied by clearly-struck circular grid and "Cleveland O. Sep. 27" (ca. 1853) circular datestamp on manila cover to Canton, Ohio, with Waverly House blue embossed corner card

Extremely Fine. Arguably the finest of the six recorded covers with the Kellogg's Penny Post stamp, of which only three are tied by a handstamp.

Kellogg's Penny Post & City Despatch was a relatively short-lived local post in Cleveland. It is believed that the post existed in 1853 and 1854. A cover dated June 28 (1853) and a piece dated April 7 (1854) are the earliest and latest recorded dates of use for the 92L1 stamp. Carrier service in Cleveland began in December 1853, which probably forced Kellogg's out of business by mid-1854.

Our records contain six Kellogg's covers. In addition to the six covers, there are at least six 92L1 stamps known off cover. All of the surviving Kellogg's covers were delivered to the post office (three from hotels); no city-delivery covers are known. Perhaps Kellogg's post was incorporated into the Cleveland carrier department started by Henry S. Bishop on December 21, 1853. Bishop left the carrier department on July 1, 1854, to become an employee of the Cleveland post office (source: Elliott Perry). Bishop's move roughly coincides with the end of Kellogg's post; however, no official records are known to us that confirm Kellogg's involvement as a carrier. The use of the black grid to cancel the stamp on this cover strongly suggests an official link to the post office.

From our 1997 Rarities sale (when discovered), and ex Edgar Kuphal and Joseph Hackmey. With 1997 P.F. certificate.

VERY FINE APPEARANCE. ONE OF ONLY SIX RECORDED COVERS WITH THE KELLOGG'S PENNY POST STAMP, AND THE ONLY ONE ADDRESSED TO A FOREIGN DESTINATION.

Kellogg's Penny Post & City Despatch was a relatively short-lived local post in Cleveland. It is believed that the post existed in 1853 and 1854. A cover dated June 28 (1853) and a piece dated April 7 (1854) are the earliest and latest recorded dates of use for the 92L1 stamp. Carrier service in Cleveland began in December 1853, which probably forced Kellogg's out of business by mid-1854.

Our records contain the following six Kellogg's covers, arranged by date (including assumed year dates)

1) Jun. 28 (ca. 1853) Cleveland datestamp ties 3c 1851, 92L1 cancelled by pencil on New England Hotel corner card cover to West Fairlee Vt., ex Caspary, Schenck, Skove, Golden (sold after the auction)

2) Jul. 11 (1853) Cleveland datestamp with "24" in circle tying 92L1 on folded cover to Mrs. Cowell, Sherborne, England, offered here

3) Jul. 29 (1853 contents) Cleveland datestamp, tied by ms. cancel on folded letter originating in Cincinnati to New Orleans, carried to Cleveland and given to Kellogg's, ex Boker

6) Jan. 21 (ca. 1854) Cleveland datestamp with black grid tying 92L1 to Painesville O., ex Hall, D.K. Collection and Geisler (Siegel Sale 965, lot 1219).

In addition to the six covers, there are at least six 92L1 stamps known off cover. All of the surviving Kellogg's covers were delivered to the post office (three from hotels); no city-delivery covers are known. We wonder if it is possible that Kellogg's post was incorporated into the Cleveland carrier department started by Henry S. Bishop on December 21, 1853. Bishop left the carrier department on July 1, 1854, to become an employee of the Cleveland post office (source: Elliott Perry).

VERY FINE. ONE OF THE FINEST OF THE FIVE RECORDED COVERS WITH THE KELLOGG'S PENNY POST STAMP, OF WHICH ONLY TWO ARE USED IN COMBINATION WITH THE 1851 ISSUE.

Kellogg's Penny Post & City Despatch was a relatively short-lived local post in Cleveland. Only two of the five recorded covers are year-dated, but it is believed that the post existed in 1853 and 1854. If the cover offered here was mailed on June 28 in 1853, then it is the earliest 92L1 usage (followed by a July 11, 1853 year-dated cover). The April 7 piece offered in lot 1286 must be an 1854 usage, because the 3c Nesbitt entire was not available before June 1853. These two items establish a date span from June 1853 through April 1854. Carrier service in Cleveland began in December 1853, which probably forced Kellogg's out of business by mid-1854.

Our records contain the following five Kellogg's covers, arranged by date (including assumed year dates): 1) Jun. 28 (ca. 1853) Cleveland datestamp ties 3c 1851, 92L1 cancelled by pencil on New England Hotel corner card cover to West Fairlee Vt., ex Caspary, Schenck and Skove, the cover offered here; 2) Jul. 11 (1853 content) Cleveland datestamp with "24" in circle tying 92L1 on folded letter to Mrs. Cowell, Dorset, England, from Harmer Rooke sale, Jul. 7-8, 1960; 3) Jul. 29 (1853 contents) Cleveland datestamp, tied by ms. cancel on folded letter originating in Cincinnati to New Orleans, carried to Cleveland and given to Kellogg's, ex Boker; 4) Sep. 1 (ca. 1853) Cleveland datestamp on cover to Newark O., one 92L1 remains from strip of three (other two torn off), ms.

EXTREMELY FINE AND A NEW DISCOVERY IN THE FIELD OF LOCAL POSTS. THE FINEST AND ONLY TIED EXAMPLE OF THE THREE RECORDED KELLOGG'S PENNY POST COVERS.

This rare local post stamp was issued in 1853 by the short-lived Kellogg's Penny Post & City Despatch. Very few examples are known, including two or three on piece and two other covers. One cover has a stamp cancelled by pencil - it is ex Caspary, Schenck, Skove (see lot 1370 in our Sale 764, where it realized $16,500 hammer). Another cover has a strip of three, uncancelled, with two of the stamps torn off. All three Kellogg's covers originated at hotels - New England Hotel (corner card), Waverly House (corner card) and Johnson House (charge endorsement). These same hotels are listed as letter-box locations in the 1854 advertisement for Bishop's City Post, the carrier service in Cleveland that began in December 1853, probably close to the time Kellogg's operation was disbanded.

Recently found in a correspondence and offered to the auction market for the first time. With 1997 P.F. certificate

BY FAR THE FINER OF THE TWO RECORDED COVERS BEARING THE KELLOGG'S STAMP

This rare local post stamp was issued in 1853 by the short-lived Kellogg's Penny Post & City Despatch. Very few examples are known, including two or three on piece and one other cover bearing a stamp as part of a strip of three, from which the adjoining pair was torn away. This cover, which was posted at the New England Hotel and carried to the mails by Kellogg, is considered to be the finest example known.
