Also a faint trace of a second handstamp just above the normal one, fresh and bright color, tied by neat "Port Hood N.S. JA 4, 1899" postmark on cover addressed locally, faint bit of cover soiling just barely affects the bottom perfs of the stamp

VERY FINE. A RARE COVER BEARING THE 2-CENT PORT HOOD PROVISIONAL STAMP.

On December 29, 1898, the postage rate was lowered from 3c to 2c, effective as of January 1, 1899. This created a shortage of 2c stamps. Boggs quotes from the postmaster of Port Hood regarding the shortage:

"When the change in Canadian postage was made -- of which we got notice by wire -- I had only a very few two cent stamps in stock so that before I got my supply from Ottawa I completely ran out out of them, and, to keep my account straight, was compelled to cut threes...about 200 "2" and 100 "1" were used. Those stamps I put on letters for delivery within the county as much as possible..."

Of special note is that there is a light but discernable second handstamp surcharge, and is specifically noted as a double surcharge on the P.F. certificate and with a Stanley Gibbons designation of No. 170a, when Stanley Gibbons listed the double surcharge based on this cover. They no longer list it as some experts feel this is not a true double surcharge.

Signed Stanley Gibbons and Bloch. With 1969 P.F. certificate as noted above, and a 1983 Friedl certificate. Cataloged as the normal provisional. SG £3,000. Unitrade C$8,000.00.
