Sale Number 1195, Lot Number 178, 1861-66 Issue Stamps, cont.24c Lilac (78), 24c Lilac (78)24c Lilac (78). Rich color, cancelled by bold strike of Waterbury Conn. Bridgeport Fireman fancy cancel, (Rohloff E-6), stamp with light creases

EXTREMELY FINE STRIKE OF THE FAMOUS BRIDGEPORT FIREMAN FANCY CANCELLATION, WHICH WAS CREATED IN WATERBURY BY POSTMASTER JOHN W. HILL. ITS USE ON A 24-CENT STAMP IS LIKELY UNIQUE.

This cancel was inspired by the annual Bridgeport Fireman's Parade through Waterbury. It is almost always seen on 3c stamps, though a few are known on 1c stamps or on a 3c entire. This use on a 24c stamp is truly remarkable -- we can only fantasize about what the cover must have looked like.

Ex Hessel and Jennings. With 1976 P.F. and 1994 P.S.E. certificates.
