Sale Number 965, Lot Number 1263, Local and Private Posts (Teese thru Walton)Teese & Co. Penny Post, Philadelphia Pa., (1c) Blue on Bluish (137L1), Teese & Co. Penny Post, Philadelphia Pa., (1c) Blue on Bluish (137L1)Teese & Co. Penny Post, Philadelphia Pa., (1c) Blue on Bluish (137L1). Large margins to clear, used with 3c Dull Red, Ty. II (11A) and tied by blue "Philadelphia Pa. Aug. 7" circular datestamp on 1853 cover to Newport R.I., local with tiny corner crease, cover with stain at left and light creases

VERY FINE. ONE OF THE MOST BEAUTIFUL TEESE & CO. COVERS KNOWN. ONLY SIX RECORDED WITH THE STAMP TIED BY A CANCELLATION.

Steven M. Roth records twelve covers, including six tied examples, in his Oct. 1993 Penny Post article. We have located an additional cover to Baltimore with the 137L1 and 3c 1851 tied by a Philadelphia Jul. 21 datestamp. However, Roth's list includes a Fox-fake tied cover (ex Malcolm, Siegel Sale 417, lot 1903), which must be removed from the record, leaving six genuinely tied covers.

With 2001 P.F. certificate
