20141   imageGuánica Provisional. 1898 (Nov 22). Cover sent to the assistant in charge of the lighthouse in San Juan, showing faint strike in violet of "CORREOS./POSTAL/Guanica P.R./E. U. of A." , accompanied by Guánica cds adjacent, showing on reverse scarce usages of MIlitary Stations No. 7 of Yauco and No. 4 of San Juan on reverse, usual toning and edge faults at top; one of only two examples recorded of this provisional. Ex Sanborn, Preston, Scalley and Gallagher. Note: The U.S. troops landed at Guánica on July 25, after the retreat of the Spanish troops together with other government personal, taking with them stamps and basic devices as cancellers. As in other few occupied towns, Guánica made provisional franking postmarks, since they were fearful Spanish stamps would not have been accepted by the Americans. The heading of this cover, "E. U. of A." for "Estados Unidos of America", which also appears in the Provisional handstamp, presumably written by the postmaster of Guánica, was a mixed Spanish-English nomination for "Estados Unidos de América" including the English word "of" instead of "de" in Spanish, and it was also an acknowledgement of the American control by local authorities.(Image 1)

Estimate. US$'s 2,000 - 3,000

20142   imageMayaguez Provisional. 1898 (Sept 9). "La Revista Blanca" commercial envelope from a cultural weekly magazine addressed to Toa-Baja, bearing provisional "POSTAGES/4cts/CORREOS" handstamp in blue, "Mayaguez/Pto Rico" cds, with El Dorado receiving backstamp in violet, which was the office handling the mail from and to Toa-Baja, as this small town did not have a post office, some creases, slight toning and bottom right corner of the cover torn off. This item is accompanied by a statement of facts signed by the Secretary of the Municipality of Toa Baja, Mr. Manuel Enríquez, stating that he was present when the letter was received and that he kept the cover as a curiosity. This is the only example recorded of the Mayaguez forerunner postmark; as such, with the postmark including a postal value, it may be considered as important as an issued stamp with only one example available; a gem of the United States possessions; ex Junghaans. Note: As in other localities, this Provisional was into force when stamps were not available after the land of the U.S. troops. This handstamp features a 4c denomination, in contrast with the provisional stamps of Ponce and Coamo which carry a 5c value, and differs from other provisional postmarks which were undenominated. The 4c handstamp therefore has greater significance.(Image 1) (Image 2)

20143   imageQuebradillas Provisional. 1898 (Nov 9). Cover to Camuy, bearing "AYUNTAMIENTO DE QUEBRADILLAS/ALCALDIA" double oval postmark in violet representing 5c postage paying the civilian single rate, in conjunction with blue dispatch cds at top right, some usual minor tone spots, rough opening at right and top, with portion torn off at top right; the only example known of this Provisional postmark; ex Preston, García Lomas and Dávila. Note: The Quebradillas Provisional was made by altering the city mayor's official seal, removing the Spanish symbols inside. As in the other few towns with Provisionals, the mayor's office had control of the mails during the interim period before stamps became available.(Image 1) (Image 2)

20144   imageUtuado Provisional. 1898 (Sept 7). Cover to San Juan bearing very fine strike of "ALCALDIA MUNICIPAL/DE UTUADO" oval star handstamp in violet which was used as a provisional 5c franking to denote the payment of this postage, accompanied by Urtado dispatch cds in black, sender's "N. Canals y Ca" straight-line cachet above, addressee's panel with some ink erosions not detracting from the fresh appearance and good strikes; a very fine example of this rare provisional usage, when the mayor's office of Utuado had the control of the mail service, in this instance used on mail crossing the enemy's lines, as San Juan was controlled by the Spanish before their withdrawal on October 18; ex Junghaans, Scalley and Gallagher.(Image 1) (Image 2)
