Sale Number 1191, Lot Number 2133, 1861-66 Issue (including First Day of Issue)3c Rose Pink (64b), 3c Rose Pink (64b)3c Rose Pink (64b). Radiant color, tied by blue "Baltimore Md. Aug. 17" 1861 First Day circular datestamp on buff cover to Philadelphia, 1861 docketing indicates sender's name and day and year received

VERY FINE. ONE OF TWO RECORDED FIRST DAY COVERS FOR ALL DENOMINATIONS OF THE 1861 ISSUE. THIS IS THE ONLY ONE WITH THE ROSE PINK STAMP. A PHENOMENAL CLASSIC FIRST DAY COVER AND A WONDERFUL EXHIBITION ITEM.

Starting in the middle of August 1861, all stamps in circulation were demonetized and replaced by a new issue, to prevent the states in rebellion from cashing in on supplies of stamps left in Southern post offices. Federal post offices throughout the country were instructed to set expiration dates for the exchange of old for new issues -- generally, the exchange period was six days from the date of receipt of new stamps. The first delivery of the new designs was delivered by National Bank Note Company to the government stamp agent, Daniel M. Boyd, on August 16, 1861. It contained over 5 million stamps for the eight initial denominations (1c, 3c, 5c, 10c, 12c, 24c, 30c and 90c). Baltimore was the first city to receive a shipment of the new stamps, which were placed on sale on Saturday, August 17. Advertisements in the local newspaper stated that new stamps were available and old stamps could be exchange up to August 22.

There are only three items known cancelled on the first day of issue, August 17. One is a 1c stamp off cover (Scott 63) with a clear Baltimore circular datestamp with the yeardate. The second is a cover with the 3c Pink (Scott 64), used to Frederick Md. with 1861 docketing at left; the stamp has a piece out at top. The third is the cover offered here, in the Rose Pink shade. None are known, either on or off cover, for the other six denominations.

A distinction should be drawn between this First Day of Issue, as opposed to an Earliest Documented Use. The latter category is subject to change based on new discoveries; the actual First Day of Issue is the day the stamps went on sale.

Ex Fisher and Berkun. With copy of 1973 P.F. certificate. Scott Retail $23,000.00 for First Day cover based on two previous auction realizations.
