VERY FINE. AN EXTRAORDINARILY RARE GUTTER STRIP OF SIX OF THE 1852 HALF-BAJOCCHI CORRECTLY PAYING THE 3-BAJOCCHI RATE ON A PETITE COVER. IDEAL FOR EXHIBITION.
The largest strip listed in the Sassone catalogue is a strip of five, which catalogues €32,500 on cover. This strip of six, with the interspazio and otto filleti varieties, is even rarer and more desirable.
Ex Hall. Signed Bloch. With 1993 Sorani certificate.
VERY FINE. A RARE USAGE OF THE 4-BAJACCHIO QUARTERED AND USED AS A 1-BAJACCHI STAMP.
Since Trevi did not have a post office at the time, the pen-cancellation was likely applied by a letter carrier in Foligno after payment by the addressee.
With 1965 A. Diena and 2004 Sismondo certificates. Scott $20,000.00. Sassone €50,000
VERY FINE APPEARANCE. AN EXTREMELY RARE SOLO USE OF THE 50-BAJOCCHI STAMP ON COVER.
The 50b stamp paid the ten-times rate to the Pontifical border. It then went through Tuscany and on to Torino.
With clear 1972 A. Diena certificate. Scott $32,500.00. Sassone €75,000 (values are for solo use)
FINE. AN ENORMOUSLY RARE USE OF THE 1864 50-BAJACCHI STAMP ON COVER. ONE OF ONLY 30 RECORDED.
This pays the correct 72-bajocchi rate to Geneva. The Sassone catalogue lists the 30 recorded copies of No. 12 on cover. This it the only one with this combination of stamps and one of two to Switzerland.
With 1985 E. Diena certificate. Scott $45,000.00 (no cancellation premium). Sassone €145,000 (with circular cancellation vs. €90,000 for the usual grid cancel)
