6280 imageCuthbert Brothers / St George's Caye Service 1895: "Caye / Service / 3 cents" (R.L. 43), imperforate, typewritten on white laid paper, red ink applied at edges, an unused example of this famous Local Issue of which just 8 examples of the stamp are recorded on cover. This example, seemingly unused, was sent to a Mr. Homer Hilton of Winnetka, Illinois on 26 January 1922 with a letter on Cuthbert Brothers paper and using what appears to be the identical typewriter that produced the original issue; explaining the circumstances of the issue and that "Mr. Aikman was only the purchaser of one to frank his letter by our steam launch...enclosed please find two specimens of stamps which were the only ones made". The 'stamp' can be considered the sole recorded reprint of the issue, sold with cert. RPSL (1966) stating this fact. Nevertheless, a fascinating insight into the Cuthbert Brothers issue.rnProvenance: Collection Jim C. Czyl, Grosvenor, London, Nov 19-20, 2014, lot 2702. (Image 1) (Image 2) (Image 3)
