Horizontal strip of three, beautiful warm shade, tied by large Boston "Paid" grids on Brigadier General Franz Sigel Patriotic cover to Vienna, Austria, "F. Hedge, Boston" imprint, Angell correspondence, red "N. York Paid Hamb. Pkt. 10 Mar. 7" 10c credit datestamp, "FRANCO" in frame handstamp, 1863 transit and receiving backstamps, trivial edgewear at top left

VERY FINE. A BEAUTIFUL AND RARE STRIP OF THREE OF THE 5-CENT 1862 RED BROWN ON A PATRIOTIC COVER TO AUSTRIA, FROM THE FAMOUS ANGELL CORRESPONDENCE. A PHENOMENAL COVER.

Dr. Henry C. Angell was a Boston optometrist who spent considerable time traveling in Europe. Covers are known sent to him in France, Italy, England, Germany and Austria, plus a few forwarded to other destinations. Dr. Angell was an art collector and undoubtedly appreciated the wide variety of Civil War patriotic envelopes mailed to him overseas.

Very few patriotic covers are known franked with the 5c Red Brown. Only two Angell covers bear this franking (the other, cancelled on the same day, was offered in our "Sevenoaks" sale). Only three others are known with the 5c Red Brown, including one with a single and two with two singles.

Ex Matthies and Myers. With 2004 P.F. certificate

Pkt. Paid Oct. 21" circular datestamp on back, sender's directive "Via England p Persia", red crayon "52" credit crossed out and restated "56", large red crayon "2" for double British Colonial credit, red London transit datestamp (Nov. 1), stamps with a couple very minor faults, vertical bleached streak at the right crosses 30c

VERY FINE. A COLORFUL AND EXTREMELY RARE 1861 ISSUE COMBINATION FOR THE DOUBLE 33-CENT RATE TO THE CAPE OF GOOD HOPE.

Double-rate covers from the Howland correspondence are almost always paid with 30c and 3c pairs, rather than this three-color combination. This cover is the perfect mate to lot 2505 in our sale of the Bailar collection (Sale 1105). Both covers were carried by the same Cunarder (different sailings) to Edwin Howland in the Cape of Good Hope. They have the same composition of denominations; however, the 5c on the Bailar cover is the Buff shade, and on this cover the relatively new Red Brown printing was used.
