11 c Image5c Red Brown (1). Large margins incl. part of adjoining stamp at right, slightly in at bottom, tied by neat manuscript "X" cancel, red "L. I. Rail Road N.Y. 5" Long Island Railroad route agent's 5c integral-rate handstamp on cover to Paris, France, addressed to "Hon. Richard Rush, Minister des Etat Unis", light strike of red circular datestamp overstruck by July 1849 Boulogne datestamp, red "Colonies &c Art. 13" framed Anglo-French accountancy handstamp tying stamp, manuscript "13" decimes due marking, light strike of July 3 receiving backstamp, probably carried on the Cunarder Europa, which departed Boston on June 20 and arrived in Liverpool on July 1, docketed at left "Wilkinson's printing press wants information &c which I cannot give, not having it", stamp with scissors-cut at bottom, cover with trivial wear

FINE. A RARE USE OF THE 5-CENT 1847 ISSUE TO FRANCE AND THE ONLY RECORDED EXAMPLE OF THE LONG ISLAND RAILROAD ROUTE AGENT'S MARKING ON COVER TO A FOREIGN DESTINATION.

The Alexander 1847 Issue census book records 31 examples of this Long Island Railroad marking, including one with the 10c and 30 with the 5c. This is the only cover to a foreign destination. The addressee, Richard Rush, was the recipient of the magnificent "Rush" cover, sent approximately eight months earlier during the Retaliatory Rate period (see Siegel Sale 912). The cover offered here was sent early in the Treaty Rate period.

12 c Image5c Red Orange (1c). Radiant color in the true Red Orange shade, large margins to clear, tied by red square grid, matching "New-York Apr. 8" circular datestamp on blue 1851 folded letter to Belvidere N.J., light file folds well away from stamp

VERY FINE. THE RED ORANGE IS THE RAREST OF ALL 5-CENT 1847 SHADES AND IS EXTREMELY DIFFICULT TO FIND ON COVER, ESPECIALLY IN SUCH CHOICE CONDITION.

According to a series of articles by the late Calvet M. Hahn in the Collector's Club Philatelist, the Red Orange shade was printed some time during the fourth and last printing, which took place in December 1850. A Power Search review produced one other example on cover (ex Amonette), but the P.F. later issued a certificate stating that the stamp is not the Red Orange.

With 2010 P.F. certificate. Unlisted in Scott as on cover. Scott Retail as used off cover $9,500.00 (Image)

Horizontal pair, huge margins to full incl. part of three adjoining stamps, radiant color, tied by red grids, matching "New-York Apl. 23" circular datestamp on brown cover to Lockport N.Y., 1851 docketing, Very Fine, a beautiful shade which we believe closely approaches if not matches the extremely rare Red Orange shade, identified as Red Orange by D. Amonette with his notes and signature on back, with 2010 P.F. certificate as Brown Orange, listed but unpriced in Scott as pair on cover, Scott Retail as two singles $2,500.00 (Image)

Ex Senchuk. With 2010 P.S.E. certificate (XF 90, SMQ $1,800.00 as ordinary used stamp). On a ratio basis, this stamp would most likely be valued around $4,200.00 in SMQ if it were listed (Image)

Feb. 14/10" Valentine's Day circular datestamp on blue folded cover to Ludlow Beebee & Co. in Philadelphia, Extremely Fine, a beautiful cover postmarked on Valentine's Day, from the Ludlow Beebe correspondence, the custom of affixing a stamp upside down to indicate romantic intentions would not apply to this business letter, but the Valentine's Day date is nonetheless desirable (Image)
