2834 og ImageBishop's City Post, Cleveland O., (unstated value) Blue (10LB1). Uncancelled and affixed to piece of cover, beautiful rich color, clear margins to touching the frameline at right

FINE AND RARE EXAMPLE OF BISHOP'S BLUE CARRIER STAMP.

Henry S. Bishop was appointed to operate the Cleveland carrier department on December 21, 1853. Research by Elliott Perry shows that Bishop became an employee of the post office on July 1, 1854, but the city post continued to function, with or without his direct participation. Bishop issued two stamps: the 10LB1 Blue with blank oval, presumably designed to accommodate more than one denomination, and the 10LB2 Black with 2c value. Both are very rare (Image)

AN OUTSTANDING ARTIFACT OF PHILADELPHIA'S BLOOD'S PENNY POST. THE ULTIMATE DISPLAY PIECE FOR A LOCAL POST COLLECTOR.

2841 ogbl ImagePomeroy's Letter Express, 5c Deep Milky Blue on Pelure Paper (117L7). Complete left pane of 20, huge margins, including enormous sheet margins on three sides, beautiful rich color in the distinctive Deep Milky Blue shade, horizontal crease between rows 3 and 4, natural pre-printing paper crease in Positions 13L and 17L, few other faint creases do not detract

EXTREMELY FINE APPEARANCE. A RECENTLY RECORDED PANE OF THE POMEROY'S LETTER EXPRESS STAMP IN DEEP MILKY BLUE ON PELURE PAPER, OF WHICH VERY FEW EXAMPLES ARE KNOWN.

This pane is printed in the distinctive Deep Milky Blue shade on very thin, nearly transparent paper. Prior to the discovery of this pane, only a few examples of Scott 117L7 were known. The Philatelic Foundation has certified this as "onion-skin paper" (an unlisted variety of 117L7), but in our opinion there is no such thing as a Pomeroy stamp on "onion skin paper," and this paper matches the other known examples of Scott 117L7, so we are not really sure why the P.F. felt compelled to create a new unlisted paper variety to describe this pane.

With 2012 P.F. certificate. (Image)
