VERY FINE APPEARANCE. AN EXTREMELY RARE "TRIPLE BISECT" USE OF BLACK JACK STAMPS ON COVER TO PAY THE 3-CENT RATE.

This is a most unusual cover, with three vertical bisects used together, and one bisect carefully positioned to create the appearance of a whole stamp -- the slight misalignment of the framelines shows that they are not halves of the same stamp. This configuration was not noted when we offered this cover in the 1969 sale of the Katharine Matthies collection, but the accompanying certificate confirms the arrangement of three vertical bisects. We are not aware of another "triple bisect" with the Black Jack or any other classic U.S. stamp.

FINE APPEARANCE. AN EXTREMELY RARE USE OF THE 2-CENT BLACK JACK AND 10-CENT 1861 ISSUE ON A COVER TO MAURITIUS, WHERE IT MET THE U.S.S. SHENANDOAH ON ITS POST-WAR JOURNEY TO THE FAR EAST VIA THE CAPE OF GOOD HOPE, INDIA AND ASIA.

The rate to the Cape of Good Hope by British Mail via Southampton was 45c. Based on the identical centering of all 10c stamps, we have no doubt the stamps on the back were on the cover when it arrived at the New York foreign-mail office. They were probably overlooked when the cover was marked 21c due and "Returned for Postage", but detected before it was handstamped with the 24c credit to Great Britain and put on the Inman steamer City of London for the May 5, 1866, sailing to Queenstown.

On April 28, 1866, the U.S.S. Shenandoah departed Rio de Janeiro to join the Asiatic Squadron. After rounding the Cape of Good Hope, the ship visited various ports in India and Asia, including Mauritius, and reached Yokohama on April 5, 1867. The Mauritius backstamp indicates this was delivered to the addressee there.
