Sale 1279, Lot 36, 1856 Diligencia Issue - One RealURUGUAY, 1856, 1r Vermilion (3). Position 8, large to full margins except just touching outer frameline at left, deep rich color and strong impression, affixed to folded letter datelined Montevideo January 14, 1859, and addressed to Tacuarembo, cover with tiny edge split

VERY FINE AND CHOICE EXAMPLE OF THE 1856 ONE-REAL "DILIGENCIA" ISSUE USED ON COVER. A MAJOR RARITY OF URUGUAY, WITH ONLY FIVE COVERS RECORDED WITH THIS VALUE. ESPECIALLY DESIRABLE IN THIS SUPERB QUALITY.

January 14, 1859, is a particularly late use for a 1856 Diligencia stamp. According to an official circular, "Diligencia" stamps were officially "retired" from circulation on August 1, 1858, and stocks were supposed to be returned. Obviously, this was not fully carried out, and some stamps were used later. This particular cover was carried on the northern stagecoach route to Tacuarembo via Canelones, Santa Lucia, Florida, and Durazno.

Our census of Scott 3 covers, available at https://siegelauctions.com/census/uruguay/scott/3, contains five covers, one of which we have not been able to locate since the Caspary sale in 1958.

Census no. 3-COV-03. Ex Hoffmann and "Tito". Signed Diaz. With 1991 Chiavarello, 1993 P.F., and 2010 Moorhouse certificates.
