VERY FINE. A RARE COMBINATION FRANKING TO PAY THE 34-CENT RATE TO PERU. A BEAUTIFUL COVER FROM THE DAVIS CORRESPONDENCE.

The story of the Portsmouth Find was first told by Elliott Coutler in the 1982 Register and summarized by Michael Laurence in his recently published book on the 10c. Probably the most plausible explanation is that two workmen found the cache of covers in a building that was about to be demolished, and they split them equally. This theory is supported by the fact that the covers made their way to market in more than one batch. The first group, consisting of 45 covers, was purchased by a dealer in Connecticut and sold by Harmer, Rooke in 1961. The sale resulted in a lawsuit by the owners who claimed the dealer did not pay them enough. The second group, consisting of approximately 40 covers, filtered their way into the market through dealers, they were probably sold this way as a result of the lawsuit over the other group.

VERY FINE. A RARE USE OF THE LOW-DENOMINATION 2-CENT AND 3-CENT 1869 PICTORIAL ISSUES ON A COVER TO HONG KONG. THIS IS THE ONLY SUCH FRANKING WE HAVE OFFERED SINCE KEEPING COMPUTERIZED RECORDS. ESPECIALLY RARE WITH THE SAN FRANCISCO "PAID ALL" MARKING.

The 2c and 3c stamps pay the 10c American Packet rate via San Francisco and Yokohama. The "Paid All" marking was applied in San Francisco on outbound treaty mail. According to the Frajola-Perlman-Scamp book, several different Paid markings were used. This large "Paid All" is very scarce. Carried aboard the PMSS Japan, which departed San Francisco on Sep. 4, 1869 and arrived in Hong Kong on Oct. 5 after a stop at Yokohama. Most covers sent this way were franked with single 10c stamps, which were readily available.
