Estimate; $5,000 - 7,500.

THE ONLY RECORDED EXAMPLE OF SPAULDING'S PENNY POST COIN HANDSTAMP WITH VALUE REMOVED.

Proprietor of Spaulding's Penny Post, Enos W. Spaulding, raised the posts letter rate on November 15th, 1847 from one to two cents. Three different Spaulding's coin handstamps are known and are all unique. The first bearing the "One Cent" value is undated but obviously was used prior to the rate change. This cover with the value removed was posted approximately one month after the rate change to two cents. A later usage of the coin handstamp in April of 1848 bears a illustrated dove at the center. Shortly thereafter, Spaulding introduced his Striding Messenger handstamp and adhesives.

Position 31, large margins to touched, clear portions of two letters of double-line watermark along left side of the stamp, cancelled by New York red "Paid" straightline; small faults, F.-V.F. appearance, with 2013 P.F. certificate.
Scott No. 9X1 var.; Estimate $1,000 - 1,500.

A RARE AND DESIRABLE EXAMPLE OF THE NEW YORK POSTMASTER'S PROVISIONAL ON PAPER SHOWING PART OF THE PAPERMAKER'S WATERMARK.

In his Chronicle series Philip T. Wall recorded watermarks with portions of an "E" or an "F". In the 1936 MacGuffin article in the American Philatelist, it was reported that of 2,000 stamps examined six copies were found to have a watermark, with the letter "J" identified. The stamp offered here clearly has an "E", and the second letter could certainly be a "J".
