301   ImageGoliad Tex., 10c Black (29X4). Type I without Clark's name printed at left and signed "Clarke P M", full margins to just in, blue wash cancel, few flaws including surface scuffs, thins causing small hole, small nick and some toning

VERY FINE APPEARANCE. THE 10-CENT TYPE I GOLIAD POSTMASTER'S PROVISIONAL IS ONE OF THE RAREST OF ALL POSTMASTERS' PROVISIONALS. ONLY FOUR ARE RECORDED, INCLUDING TWO ON ROSE PAPER AND TWO ON WHITE PAPER.

The Goliad provisionals were printed from typeset forms in denominations of 5c and 10c. The Type I setting, without Clarke's name, was used to print stamps issued prior to the Type II setting, probably in 1861 and 1862. The Type II setting was probably made in 1863. For the first setting the stamps were signed by hand in either red or black ink.

August Dietz reported that the Goliad provisional stamps and the similar stamps of Helena, Texas, were printed at the offices of the Goliad Messenger. The editor of this newspaper was Reverend Alexander F. Cox (his middle initial was incorrectly stated as "M." by Dietz). The publisher was R. W. Peirce. The November 12, 1864, edition of the Goliad Messenger is available on-line at http://texashistory.unt.edu. Reverend Cox died on April 5, 1897, and his obituary appeared in the Weekly Picayune (April 9, 1897).

Ex Colonel Edward H. R. Green. Our census of Goliad provisionals is available at http://www.siegelauctions.com/dynamic/census/29X1-29X9/29X1-29X9.pdf (Image)
