VERY FINE. ONE OF FOUR RECORDED EXAMPLES OF THE VICTORIA 10-CENT TYPE II POSTMASTER’S PROVISIONAL, ALL OF WHICH ARE OFF COVER, INCLUDING TWO UNUSED STAMPS. THIS IS BY FAR THE FINER OF THE TWO USED EXAMPLES, AND IT IS ONE OF TWO SOUND COPIES EXTANT.
We record four examples of the Victoria 10c Type II (bold slanting numerals):
1) Unused, small thin, ex Ferrary, Hind, Brooks, Moody and Kilbourne
2) Unused, sound, Siegel 1968 Rarities sale
3) Used, part of circular datestamp at lower right, ex Sotheby Parke Bernet sale, Apr. 15, 1979, “Camina” (Castillejo) and Dr. Maffeo, the stamp offered here
4) Used, part of datestamp with “Oct” month, extensively repaired across lower right, ex Caspary
The only other used example of the Victoria 10c Type II provisional is the ex- Caspary stamp, which is heavily repaired. The only other sound stamp is the unused copy listed as number 2 above.
Illustrated in Crown book (page 357). Ex “Camina” (Castillejo) and Dr. Maffeo. With 1994 P.F. certificate. Scott Value as unused (unpriced as used)
