Sale Number 1241, Lot Number 1068, N.Y. Postmaster's Provisional, 1847 Issue10c Black (2), 10c Black (2)10c Black (2). Position 82R (plate notation on back of cover), ample to large margins, tied by bold manuscript cross-hatch cancel on dull green folded tissue-paper letter to Stuttgart, Germany, manuscript "Naples Ill./24 Sept." (1849) postmark above stamp where it entered the mails, dateline inside letter (which is written in German) indicates letter was begun in Quincy, Illinois, on September 21, 1849, and continued in Naples on September 23, sender's routing directive "p. British Mail Steamer via New York & Liverp.", no New York foreign-mail office markings--carried on the Cunarder Cambria, departing New York on October 3, 1849, and arriving at Liverpool October 18--red London transit backstamp (October 18), mostly readable strike of red "COLONIES/&c ART. 13" Anglo-French accountancy handstamp, Calais arrival datestamp (October 19), red crayon "42" kreuzers due, small blue German "D1 22/10" in circle receiving backstamp (October 22), receipt docketing notation to the right of stamp, which has a negligible small corner crease at top right, minor ink erosion in docketing at bottom.

VERY FINE. ONE OF FOUR CONFIRMED 10c 1847 ISSUE COVERS TO GERMANY -- AND, OF THE THREE 1847 COVERS TO GERMANY WITH THE "COLONIES/&C ART. 13" HANDSTAMP, ONLY THIS ONE HAS A 10c STAMP.

This cover is one of four verified 10c 1847 covers to Germany (of the five in the USPCS census), and it is one of three with either denomination bearing the "COLONIES/&c ART. 13" marking.

The 10c stamp was clearly intended to pay the over-300 miles rate from Naples, Illinois, to New York City for the next available Cunard sailing. However, unbeknownst to the sender and possibly the postmaster of this small midwestern town, the 1848 U.S.-Great Britain postal treaty required only 5c internal U.S. postage on covers sent by Open Mail to or through Great Britain; therefore, since all other markings indicate this was a single-rate letter, the 10c stamp overpaid the 5c shore-to-ship rate.

USPCS Census no. 1299. Ex Knapp, Rust, Stollnitz, "Sevenoaks", Craveri, Hackmey and Gross. Illustrated in The United States 1847 Issue: A Cover Census (in color section and also on p. 932) and in Burkhard Krumm's article, "1847 Covers to the German States" (Chronicle 256). With 1999 P.F. certificate.

Sale Number 1239, Lot Number 511, 1847 Issue10c Black (2), 10c Black (2)10c Black (2). Position 10L, huge margins all around including enormous top right corner margins, 3-4mm at right and 8mm at top, intense early impression, tied by red square grid, matching "New-York Aug. 25" (1847) circular datestamp on blue folded letter to Vienna N.Y.

EXTREMELY FINE GEM. THIS IS WITHOUT QUESTION THE FINEST CORNER-MARGIN COPY OF THE 10-CENT 1847 ISSUE ON COVER. FROM A RELATIVELY RECENT DISCOVERY, WHICH WAS OFFERED TO THE MARKET FOR THE FIRST TIME IN OUR 2006 RARITIES SALE.

In his extensive census of the 10c 1847 issue with corner sheet margins, Philip T. Wall records a total of sixteen used stamps on or off cover (another three or four covers have since been recorded). Others can be plated as corner margin positions but do not show significant sheet margins. Many of these have faults, the most common being creases in the selvage.

This cover was part of a find of eleven 5c and 10c 1847 covers, which were discovered in 2004 in Geneva, New York. Nine of the eleven are addressed to Samuel Baldwin.

USPCS census no. 7910. With 2006 P.F. certificate.

Sale Number 1239, Lot Number 512, 1847 Issue10c Black (2), 10c Black (2)10c Black (2). Position 22R, large margins to full at upper left, tied by blurry strike of blue "Philada. Pa. 10 Nov. 5" (1849) 10c integral-rate circular datestamp with second strike at right on folded letter to "Color Maker Hamilton Print Works" in Lowell Mass., with dark blue illustration of the medicinal plant Valerian, letter is from Arthur Campbell, an employee of the pharmaceutical company Powers & Weightman, contains lengthy and interesting content on pharmaceutical manufacturing and also references "Per Blood's Despatch" in origination address

VERY FINE. A VERY EARLY EXAMPLE OF WHAT CAN RIGHTLY BE CALLED AN ILLUSTRATED ADVERTISING DESIGN ON A 10-CENT 1847 ISSUE COVER.

Powers & Weightman, who employed the writer of this letter and used the Valerian plant in its chemical compounds, was founded by William Weightman (1813-1904). Weightman was a prominent chemical manufacturer and one of the largest landowners in the United States during the mid-1800's. He was nicknamed the "Quinine King" and invented a synthetic form of the drug. The company merged in the 1920's with the pharmaceutical giant Merck & Co.

USPCS census no. 11820. Accompanied by a transcription of the letter. With 1990 P.S.E. certificate
