THE ONLY RECORDED EXAMPLE OF THE ROGERS' PENNY POST HANDSTAMP ON A COVER. THIS MARKING WAS USED TO CREATE THE UNIQUE ADHESIVE STAMP ON GREEN PAPER, SCOTT 162L1. AN IMPORTANT LOCAL POST RARITY.

Elliott Perry located advertisements for Rogers' Penny Post in the Newark Daily Advertiser from April 10 through July 19, 1856. Alfred H. Rogers was identified in the ads as the proprietor of the post. Perry reported that Rogers was located at 194 Broad St. from 1851 to 1855, and at 99 Broad from 1856 until 1859-60. This cover is almost certainly an August 1856 use.

The unique adhesive stamp, on green glazed paper (Scott 162L1), was offered in our 2000 sale of the Hall collection (Sale 830, lot 752, realized $27,000 hammer). The impression was made from the handstamp device used on this cover. Only one example of each has been recorded.
