4155 image1871 (April 14): Great Britain 1865 4 d. vermilion pl. 12 and 1 s. green pl. 4, two examples, one with rounded corner, used on 1871 double rate cover from Buenos Aires to Harburg, Prussia endorsed 'pr.

'London / Paid' and circular 'PD' in red on obverse and reverse with arrival in black (May 17). These markings in blue are seldom found and are only known in 1871.

4156 image1865/67: Great Britain 4 d. vermilion, pl. 13 used with 1867/80 1 s. green, pl. 6 with trimmed wing margin on 1873 cover from Buenos Aires to Naples, handstamped "POR EBRO" in black, 1867/74 Rivadavia 5 c. vermilion (Scott 20) paying local postage tied by "Buenos Aires" cds at right (Sept 30) and cover endorsed "par "Ebro" via Inglaterra" at top. British stamps unaccepted for postage in Argentina from July 1873, and thus the adhesives were cancelled in transit by London obliterator in black with "Paid" datestamp in red adjacent (Nov 1). Backstamed Verona (Nov 4) and Naples (Nov 5) where charged '20' decimi due to pay in red crayon manuscript. Some slight imperfections but a most unusual cover. Certs. E. Diena (1988), BPA (2021).rnNote: A similar combination cover from Buenos Aires (Aug. 1873) but with the GB 4d orange handstamped POR "DUORO" was in the J.Grant Glassco collection 1969 (lot 545).

Reverse with British and Austrian Post Office datestamps of arrival (Nov 8). Some peripheral aging but an unusual and very early 'philatelic' cover. Cert. BPA (1982).rnNote: The use of British stamps in Argentina was ended in 1873. Great Britain and Egypt were original signatories of the UPU in 1875, Argentina joined on 1 April 1878. The above cover was probably mailed between an Argentinian postal clerk to his opposite number in the Austrian Post Office in Alexandria.rnProvenance: Collection Grant Glassco, RL, London, 25-27 Nov 1969, lot 551.

4159 image1867 (Nov 21): Bolivia Condor 5 c. green, a used vertical pair from the original plate, 5th printing, positions 15/27 with large margins all round (Scott 1b) tied to 1867 combination cover from Lamar to Baltimore, USA in combination with Great Britain 1867 1 s. green pl. 4 applied for onward tranmission, the Bolivia pair cancelled by light circular LAMAR / FRANCA handstamp in black and the Great Britain 1 s. green cancelled by a fine strike of the "C39" obliterator of the British Postal Agency in Cobija in black, with corresponding single ring COBIJA datestamp below (Nov 21). Struck in transit with circular 'N.Y. STEAMSHIP / 10' (Dec 21) for incoming Ship Letter fee. Minor vertical file fold crosses the lower Condor 5 c. not detracting from the wonderful appearance. This extraordinary cover is, in this describer's opinion, the sole proper combination usage available to philatelists as we believe the ex Dr. Kornan cover, whilst equally fine and attractive, is more of a chance usage where the sender eventually mailed his cover directly from the British Agency in Cobija (photograph of same with the lot); illustrated in Parmenter & Gordon on page 3/6 who state "the only known combination cover serviced by both the Bolivian and British Post Office". A highlight of the collection: this magificent rarity is one of the greatest covers of both South American and British Postal History extant.rnProvenance: Collection Louise Boyd Dale & Alfred Lichtenstein, Harmers, New York, 17-18 Feb 1969, lot 282; Collection Dr. Norman Hubbard.

Mail to Southampton', tied by two strikes of the "C39" obliterator with superb COBIJA circular datestamp below (July 20, code C) in black. The stamps originally cut on piece from the envelope and thankfully returned to their original position, reverse with Guildford arrival cds (Aug 28). Illustrated in Parmenter & Gordon on page 3/6. The cover with further faults but a most elusive Postal Agency and despite the obvious imperfections, a not unattractive cover and a very rare usage.rnProvenance: Collection Andrê Bollen, Köhler, Wiesbaden, 8 Feb 1983, lot 483.

Fine strike of extremely rare oval "INSUFFICIENTLY / R DE J / PREPAID" handstamp in black at left and "11d." charge due to pay in manuscript. The Insufficiently Prepaid marking is peculiar to Brazil and is recorded, albeit rarely, between 1870 and 1873; however this usage with a 1 d. red star would perhaps point to an earlier date of use. A beautiful cover.rnProvenance: Collection J.
