Schuyler J. Rumsey Philatelic Auctions Sale - 89

The John Barwis Collection of Philadelphia Postal History - October 5, 2019

Welcome to our October 5, 2019 Sescal auction of the John Barwis Collection of Philadelphia postal history. The Philadelphia Postal History collection was formed over many years providing tremendous opportunity for research. Although he was quite successful exhibiting the Philadelphia Foreign Mails, winning numerous Grand Awards and two Large Golds at NY2016 and Stockholmia, the real payoff was the collecting and assembling. Some noted early transatlantics including 1748 prepaid ship letter to London rated by Postmaster Benjamin Franklin, several different 1774-75 London Inland and Packet postage handstamp uses, Revolutionary War and War of 1812 Blockade uses, 1770 Benjamin Franklin free frank, several Philadelphia Square Rigged ship letter illustrated handstamp uses, 1851 Great Britain 2d strip of four prepaid transatlantic ship letter, etc. The rich history of Philadelphia is clearly evident from colonial times through the Revolutionary War, War of 1812, and into the UPU period.
