VERY FINE APPEARING EXAMPE OF THE RARE 1847 LADY MCLEOD STAMP.

This private-issue stamp appeared six months before the "Post Office" Mauritius and is the earliest stamp used in any British Colony. The stamp was issued in April 1847 to prepay the private conveyance of mails on the Lady Mcleod between Port of Spain and San Fernando. Details regarding the printing of this stamp have never been found, but it has been surmised that they were likely printed at the offices of the local newspaper, as were several other early British Colonial stamps and the Hawaiian Missionaries. The full story of this stamp is told on pp. 196-199 of Stamps of Fame by L.N. & M. Williams.

Peter Ford Census No. U19 (which can be found on the British West Indies Study Circle website). This stamp has always been traded as unused. With the certificate noting a corner skimmed, some may consider this used. With 1969 R.P.S. certificate as noted above. Scott $50,000.00 as unused - $12,000.00 as used - $5,500.00 as skimmed. SG £35,000 as unused and £12,500 as used
