EXTREMELY FINE STRIKE OF THE HOCKANUM RUNNING FOX FANCY CANCEL. ONE OF THE RAREST OF ALL 1861 ISSUE ERA FANCY CANCELLATIONS.

A history of the fascinating Hockanum Running Fox cancel, written by Connecticut postal historian William J. Duffney, can be downloaded as a PDF file at http://ctpostalhistory.com/CtPP/Postal_Markings_files/Dudley%27sFoxStory2015LR.pdf .

The Running Fox cancel was carved by postmaster Dudley Fox, who was also a silversmith, giving him the skills to carve an intricate fancy cancel. Fewer than a dozen covers with the Running Fox cancel are recorded (all types, facing right or left). This is one of the finest.

Ex "Artemis". With 2011 P.F. certificate
