Sale Number 1190, Lot Number 1443, Blockade-Run MailForwarded by Henry Adderley & Co. Nassau. N.P. Bahamas, Forwarded by Henry Adderley & Co. Nassau. N.P. BahamasForwarded by Henry Adderley & Co. Nassau. N.P. Bahamas. Bold strike of blue forwarder's oval handstamp (second strike on back) on folded inbound blockade-run cover to Jas. Wright at Oswichee Ala., bold partly-struck "Charleston S.C. Jul. 3, 186(2)" circular datestamp and "STEAM-SHIP" in oval handstamp, pencil "32" rate for triple 10c postage plus 2c ship fee, manuscript "From J. F. & Co." (John Fraser & Co. in Liverpool), pencil receipt docketing indicates origin date was March 16, 1862

EXTREMELY FINE. ONE OF FEWER THAN FIVE RECORDED INBOUND BLOCKADE-RUN COVERS WITH THE ADDERLEY FORWARDER'S HANDSTAMP. AN OUTSTANDING AND VERY RARE USE.

This was carried on the blockade-runner Herald (I) from Nassau on June 30, arriving at Charleston on July 3, 1862. John Fraser & Co. was the London affiliate of Fraser Trenholm & Co., while Henry Adderley & Co. was their Nassau agent. This cover nicely ties together all three entities.

Special Routes Census No. BI-Ch-2. The census records only two other examples of the Adderley & Co. handstamp on inbound covers, but we are aware of one other formerly in the Myers and Dr. Brandon collections. Ex Walske
