The Brandon Collection, Part 1: Postmasters' Provisionals
 
Sale Number 1073, Lot Number 247, Courtland Ala. thru Goliad Tex.Goliad Tex., 10c Black (29X4), Goliad Tex., 10c Black (29X4)Goliad Tex., 10c Black (29X4). Type I without Clark's name printed at left and signed "Clarke P M" in red ink, the paper has a slight tint to it and the owner collected it as rose paper but we feel it is more of a grayish-white, faintly cancelled if at all, appears unused, full margins to just in at top right, small flaws including sealed tear and small repair to bottom left corner

VERY FINE APPEARANCE. AN EXTREMELY RARE EXAMPLE OF THE 10-CENT TYPE I GOLIAD POSTMASTER'S PROVISIONAL, WHICH APPEARS UNUSED. THIS IS ONE OF THE RAREST OF ALL POSTMASTERS' PROVISIONALS, WITH ONLY FOUR RECORDED.

The Goliad provisionals were printed from typeset forms in denominations of 5c and 10c. The Type I setting, without Clarke's name, was used to print stamps issued prior to the Type II setting, probably in 1861 and 1862. The Type II setting was probably made in 1863. For the first setting the stamps were signed by hand in either red or black ink.

August Dietz reported that the Goliad provisional stamps and the similar stamps of Helena, Texas, were printed at the offices of the Goliad Messenger. The editor of this newspaper was Reverend Alexander F. Cox (his middle initial was incorrectly stated as "M." by Dietz). The publisher was R. W. Peirce. The November 12, 1864, edition of the Goliad Messenger is available on-line at http://texashistory.unt.edu. Reverend Cox died on April 5, 1897, and his obituary appeared in the Weekly Picayune (April 9, 1897).

Ex Caspary.
