Addressed to Hamilton, with a SEP.28 receiver on back (also Bickerdike dater hub) and DEC.29 carrier handstamp on front. Reduced at left, still fine and scarce. (Scan a) Est $ 200

352 CVR   imageDecember 8, 1898 Second Day of Use, being an illustrated advertising cover from the Grand Union Hotel, mailed Ottawa (almost perfect strike of Bickerdike flag) to Rock Island Qué. through Coaticook (DEC.9 transit on back). Franked with a 2c Map and a 1c Numeral, paying the 3c domestic letter rate. As the2c Map stamp was issued before the Jan.1.1899 rate change, it was necessary to uprate such frankings. (Scan a) Est $ 500

353 CVR   imageDecember 10, 1898 Fourth Day of Use, mailed Toronto (broken circle free strike) to Barrie, Ontario (DEC.12 receiver on back), franked with a lovely strip of four of the 2c Map, paying the 3c postage plus 5c registration rate.

354 CVR   imageJanuary 1, 1899 First Day of Lowered 2c Domestic Rate, a William Bryce corner card cover mailed Toronto (Bickerdike flag) to Porte [sic] Hope (JAN.2 squared circle receiver on back). Christmas day 1898 fell on a Sunday, and many people purposely mailed their letters on that day, but when it comes to January 1st, also a Sunday, far fewer people mailed on that day, and as result fewer than 10 covers are know dated that day with this franking. Very fine. Ex. Bain and Fawn. (Scan a) Est $ 350

355 CVR   image2c Map Bisected to Pay the 1c Drop Letter Rate, mailed Montreal on FEB.21.1899 this cover was mailed using a diagonally bisected Map stamp (upper half) to pay the 1c drop letter rate. The stamp is properly tied by a Montreal Bickerdike flag machine cancel. We are aware of only two other bisects of the Map stamp, one bisected vertically from Upper Stewiacke NS on FEB.18.1899 (ex. Fawn) and another bisected diagonally (possibly the lower half of this stamp?) mailed in Montreal on FEB.25.1899 to a different address but also cancelled with the same Bickerdike machine (also ex. Fawn). (Scan a) Est $ 500

Map stamps on newspaper receipts are scarce to rare, and the Fawn collection did not have one. (Scan a) (Scan b) (All Scans)
