The manner in which the Walterborough provisional handstamp was used suggests that it might have been applied both as a provisional and as a handstamped Paid marking.

Perfectly clear strike on light gray adversity cover made from printed form, to Adams Run S.C., matching "Walterborough S.C. Apr. 15" circular datestampEXTREMELY FINE. WE RECORD ONLY FIVE EXAMPLES OF THE WALTERBOROUGH HANDSTAMP.

Although the Scott Catalogue lists the 10c handstamp in both Black and Carmine, neither Crown nor our own records confirm the existence of a Black entire. Of the Carmine we record five entires, all 1864 dates as follows: Jan. 15, Mar. 18, Apr. 15 (the cover offered here, last offered in our sale 810), Aug. 31 (turned usage, offered in our Sale 801) and Nov. 9 (turned usage, possibly 1863). A cut square on a 3c Red Star Die is also known.

The Scott Catalogue also describes this provisional marking as "Typeset", implying that it was press-printed, which is not the case. It was handstamped from an ornately framed marker. The turned usages and absence of control marks on any of the examples indicate that this was a handstamped "Paid" marking, not a true provisional. However, it is the Scott-listed 108XU2 and, whatever its status, the marking is extremely rare.

Aug. 31" (1864) circular datestamp on brown turned cover to Ballsville Va., charge box notation, with fascinating enclosures: a printed sheet showing patented assembly of "Brown's Patent Sorgum or Sugar-Cane Crusher" with original transmittal letter from Edward Brown describing terms for licensing and offering commissions on sales - returned to Brown with note on back "the people here seem to be satisfied with such crushers as they have"; the entire is the same one used by Brown for the original mailing - inside has ms.
