20138 ,, Scott 201 imageCoamo Provisional. 1898, 5c black, complete sheet of ten, types II-I-I-I-I / III-III-IV-II-II, exhibiting the design quite clear with faint strikes of the violet "F. Santiago" straight-line control mark of the Mayor of Coamo, ample to large margins with almost full original gum, very good impression and freshness, top right stamp with light staining caused by water, not mentioned in the certificate; one of only six complete sheets recorded; cert. PF (1976), signed Mekeel; Scott $10'000; ex Gándara and Acevedo. Note: When the Spanish retreated, they took with them the stamps and postal devices, when they were not destroyed afterwards by the population. Before new issues under the American administration became available, few towns used provisional stamps or markings under the control of the the Mayors. In the case of Coamo, the mayor Santiago, applied his "F. Santiago" control mark on the issued stamps to avoid counterfeits. 50 sheets were printed for a total of 500 stamps issued; over half of those sheets were bough to the U.S. by Mr. Alfred Tittman, an American stamp collector, and Charles Havilland Mekeel, a well-known American stamp dealer and editor of numerous philatelic journals, sold much of the available items, also cutting up sheets into singles. The present block was signed on reverse "Guaranteed - CHMeekeel".(Image 1) (Image 2)

20140 Scott 201 imageCoamo Provisional. 1898, 5c black, type II, position 10, ample to large margins showing complete frame lines, good impression, used on envelope to Presidio, California (Potts correspondence), tied by "Military Sta.1/Porto Rico.Wash. D.C." duplex cancel, repeated adjacent, backstamped with New York, San Francisco and Presidio ds; one of only two Coamo covers known bearing the franking tied by a postmark, a key-gem of Puerto Rican philately; cert. PF (1992); Scott $27'500; ex Gallagher and Acevedo. Note: Only 500 examples of this stamp were printed and, according to the Siegel Census, just ten covers have survived, of which three were sent to San Francisco, sent by Captain Potts to his wife, these being the only covers extant sent abroad bearing a Coamo Provisional. As the stamp was only valid internally, it paid the portion of the journey from Coamo to Ponce, and this mail should have required 2c postage for onward transmission, but it was nevertheless accepted without additional franking by the military postal clerk.(Image 1) (Image 2)
