6258 imageClara Rothe / St. Thomas - Puerto Rico 1866/69: Two album pages with imperforate Proofs for 4 c. value in red-brown and 2 r. in blue, 2 c. black on green coloured paper Proof perforated 10½, the unissued set of four: ½ r. blue, 1 r. orange-red, 2 r. mauve and 4 r. green, and the same four values all printed in black; these originals being printed by Stern in Paris and very scarce. The collection continues with 1st Forgery in black perf. 13 or trimmed to appear imperforate, 2nd Forgery with spurious cancels (gros chiffres 944 and oval BM), and a 3rd unreported Forgery with the vignette without the background horizontal lines. Whilst treated largely as a 'bogus' issue, the originals are extremely scarce as are the Proofs; see Ringström & Tester pages 114-118.rnNote: The Steamer 'Clara Rothe' was named after the daughter of the DWI Governor from 1820-1822, she was built at Southampton by C.A. Day & Co., sailing from there to St. Thomas and arriving on 28th March 1865. Due to local opposition to her proposed service between St. Thoms and Puerto Rico she was sold to Haiti between April and June 1866. The stamp issue proposed for the service was ordered by the Frenchman George Nunes from Paris and arrived after the service ceased. (Image 1)
