HISTORY AND COMMENTARY

Dr. Hadley's Perforating Machine

The origin of the Chicago perforation was revealed in an article published by Jerry Wagshal in the Chronicle 130 (May 1986). To briefly summarize his research, the inventor of the machine used to create the Chicago Perf stamps was Dr. Elijah W. Hadley, a Chicago dentist. He probably constructed the machine in 1854. Over a two-year period, beginning in November 1854, Dr. Hadley's device was offered for sale to the Post Office Department through R. K. Swift, a prominent Chicago banker and businessman. The distinctive 12.5-gauge Chicago Perf was applied to sheets of the 1¢ (Plates 1 Late and 2) and 3¢ 1851 Issue, the 1¢ being considerably rarer.

According to the updated census of Chicago Perf items compiled by W. Wilson Hulme II (Chronicle 175, Aug. 1997), approximately 19 examples of the 1¢ Chicago Perf have been recorded, including five used on covers. These are:

1 Type II, Plate 2 (not plated), tied by Chicago May 29, 1856 datestamp on P. L. Wells May 28, 1856 circular to Armitage, ex Gross (Sale 1041, lot 375)

2 Type II, Position 71R2, "Paid" cancel (no dated postmark), on P. L. Wells May 28, 1856 circular to Edmonstone & Co., Montreal, Canada, ex Ishikawa and Dr. Martin (Sale 893, lot 38), the cover offered in this sale

3 Type II, Position 95L2, tied by grid cancel on P. L. Wells circular to Sheppard & Morgan, NYC, ex Jefferys, currently in the Franklin Institute, unavailable to collectors

4 Type II, Position 48R2, "Paid" cancel on Lake View Water Cure circular (no date), Ashbrook Vol. II, p. 26, current whereabouts or state of this cover unknown

5 Type II, Plate 2, used with three 3¢ 1851 on cover, Cherry Valley Ill. to Leland, Oregon Territory, ex Wagshal (Sale 994, lot 1140)

Summarizing the census data, there are currently five 1¢ Chicago Perf covers accepted as genuine, all Type II from Plate 2, one of which is part of the Franklin Institute's collection. Of the four in private hands, one has not been seen and is known only from Ashbrook's description. Therefore, only three confirmed covers are in private hands, two of which are May 28, 1856, printed circulars.

A small number of 3¢ Chicago Perf covers have corner cards from businesses or hotels. Wilson Hulme speculates in his article in Chronicle 175 that R. K. Swift distributed Chicago Perf stamps to various businesses as a trial or to strengthen the possibility of selling the perforating machine to the post office. Many of the businesses were in a straight path between Swift's bank and Elijah Hadley's (inventor of the machine) office. Covers from Chicago hotels with 3¢ Chicago Perf stamps were probably mailed by travelers who obtained the stamps from the hotel concierge.

The cover offered here was mailed from Cherry Valley Ill., which is outside of Chicago and close to Rockford Ill. According to Oregon 1859: A Snapshot in Time, the recipient, James H. Twogood, laid out a land claim in the area in 1851 and named it Grave Creek Ranch. The town of Leland was formally established in March 1855 and became a gathering point for the army and volunteers fighting the Rogue River Indian War in the area. Twogood built a hotel on the ranch. By 1860 it became a stop for the California Oregon Stage Line. There were also several mines in the area, including one owned by Twogood.
