(Rohloff A-14) and by equally perfect strike of "Waterbury Ct. Feb. 2" (1870) circular datestamp on light yellow cover with Scoville House of Waterbury corner card to Boston

EXTREMELY FINE GEM. THIS IS WITHOUT QUESTION THE FINEST STRIKE OF THE WATERBURY SMALL BEE FANCY CANCELLATION IN EXISTENCE. ESPECIALLY DESIRABLE ON A WATERBURY HOTEL CORNER CARD COVER. ONE OF THE FINEST OF ALL WATERBURY COVERS.

The Small Bee cancel is not the rarest of Waterbury designs (21 covers recorded by William T. Crowe), but full and clear strikes are extremely rare. The example offered here, with every nuance of Postmaster John W. Hill's engraving perfectly clear, is truly remarkable.

EXTREMELY FINE STRIKE OF THE RARE AND DESIRABLE "CONGRESS GAITER" BUTTONLESS SHOE FANCY CANCELLATION. THIS IS ONE OF THE MOST DISTINCTIVE WATERBURY FANCY CANCELLATIONS.

According to Wikipedia, this style of buttonless shoe was invented for Queen Victoria in 1836, utilizing stretchable rubber (a new invention) at the sides in place of laces but still keeping the profile of lace-ups. Its feminine image was soon lost and was adopted by male wearers, at which time it was dubbed the Congress Gaiter or Boston Boot in the United States. William T. Crowe records twelve covers in his Waterbury census.
