VERY FINE STRIKE OF THE RARE MORTAR & PESTLE FANCY CANCELLATION OF WATERBURY, CONNECTICUT.

The Waterbury postmaster, John W. Hill, carved three different Mortar & Pestle cancellations. The Rohloff Types 1 and 3 (O-5 and O-7) were carved in 1867 and used with the large double-circle datestamp. They are much rarer than the Type 2 Mortar & Pestle (O-6) that was carved in 1869 and used with the 1868 Grilled and 1869 Pictorial Issues. We know of two other covers with this Type 3 Mortar & Pestle: one is illustrated in Rohloff (p. 181) and the other was offered in our 2011 Rarities sale (realized $17,000 hammer).

Ex Houser. With 1990 P.F. certificate
