Sale Number 1211, Lot Number 42, 1847 Issue— 10¢ Bisected Usage, 10¢ 1847 vertical bisect used from Philadelphia for the 5¢ under 300-miles rate

10¢ Black, Vertical Half Used As 5¢ (2b), left vertical half, large margins to just clear at bottom, tied by blue "Philada Pa. 5 Mar. 23" (1849) integral-rate circular datestamp on bluish folded letter to New Hope, Pennsylvania, some minor cover staining far from stamp, Very Fine, for some reason there are far fewer left half vertical bisects than right half bisects listed in the USPCS census--there is no "Paid" marking on this cover, and it is unclear if the integral-rate datestamp was intended as a postage due marking or just a cancel--ex West and Boker, illustrated in Ashbrook Bound Book (no. 11, cover 279, USPCS website), with 1988 P.F. certificate

Right vertical half, large margins to just in at top, detailed impression, tied by magenta grid cancels, matching "Hartford Ct. Jun. 2" circular datestamp on black-bordered mourning envelope to Brooklyn Conn., cover with minor soiling not mentioned on accompanying certificate

VERY FINE. A BEAUTIFUL EXAMPLE OF A VERTICAL BISECT OF THE 10-CENT 1847 ISSUE USED FROM HARTFORD AND TIED BY A MAGENTA CANCEL. THIS IS THE ONLY RECORDED 1847 ISSUE BISECT USED FROM HARTFORD, AS WELL AS THE ONLY ONE ON A MOURNING ENVELOPE.

The Alexander book lists two right vertical halves used as bisects from Hartford. However the other, with a magenta circular datestamp and black grid, has received a P.F. certificate as not genuine. That makes this the only bisect known from Hartford. It is also the only recorded 10c 1847 bisect on a mourning envelope.

Ex Rust, Hawley and Boker. With 1987 P.F. certificate.
