Sale Number 1211, Lot Number 527, 1869 Pictorial Issue, A rare combination of the 12¢ 1869 Pictorial and 30¢ F Grill on cover to the Philippines, and one of only two with the rare Hong Kong-Singapore Marine Sorter handstamp

12¢ Green (117), rich color, trace of guide arrow at top left, used with 30¢ Orange, F. Grill (100), bright shade, tied by circle of wedges cancels on blue folded letter from Charles F. Wyman in Cambridge, Massachusetts, to Manila, Philippines, red "Boston Mass. Aug. 13" (1869) circular datestamp, Robt. B. Storer blue oval forwarder handstamp, sender's directive "Via Marseilles", red crayon "32" credit, red "London Paid" datestamp (August 26) also ties stamps, red "1d" British Colonial credit handstamp, "Hong-Kong Marine Sorter, Singapore to Hong Kong, OC 1/7 69" backstamp, Hong Kong and Manila datestamps also on back, "2" handstamped due marking applied at Manila

Extremely Fine; 12¢ slight bend from file fold, 30¢ single short perf at right.

An attractive combination of the 12¢ 1869 Pictorial issue and 30¢ 1868 F Grill, and extremely rare to the Philippines. This is one of only two recorded 1869 covers to the Philippines with the rare Hong Kong-Singapore Marine Sorter handstamp. One of the most spectacular and colorful 1869 uses extant.

The Peirce correspondence to Manila reached the philatelic community in the early 1980s. Prior to the revelation of this correspondence, Philippines was unknown as a destination with the 1869 Issue. With the dispersal of the so-called "Manila Find" by H. R. Harmer in 1994, the full scope of the Peirce correspondence became known. This cover from the Peirce correspondence is one of three examples of the 42¢ rate prepaid with an 1869 stamp in the franking. This is also one of only two covers in the correspondence with the Hong Kong-Singapore Marine Sorter backstamp (the other ex Coulter).

Ex Edgar Kuphal ("European's Large Gold" collection). With 2000 P.F. certificate.
