LotNo. Symbol CatNo. Lot Description
511   imageArgentina, Old-Time Postal Stationery Wrapper Horde, 1870s-96, over 1,300 vintage wrappers, 95% from the 1870s' Juan de Arenales Issue to the 1896 first embossed Liberty Head issue. Not sure where this lot has been over the past 120 years, but it appears mostly untouched except for the addition of a handful of more recent items. As is typical for most Argentina lots many are postmarked Buenos Aires, but closer examination reveals many smaller towns and items are mostly domestically used, but there is a sizeable proportion of uprated items sent to Brazil, France, Germany, Italy, and others part of the world—even to Dorpat, Russia. In addition to the originating cancel there are numerous with numbered 'CARTERO', BUZON', 'EXPEDICION', 'DOMICILIO LISTAS', 'OFICINA DE LISTAS', 'OC/CS' as well as boxed 'DEVUELTO OFICINA DE IMPRESOS'. There are many numbered individual town name cancels (it appears that the Argentine Post Office had its own special cancels for items sent with wrappers), as well as 'T' markings on Postage Due and returned items. There is one example of H&G #20b with misspelt 'REPULIBCA' (this alone catalogues $300 in the specialized Argentinian Catalogue). This lot is worthy of detailed examination by a specialist as there are many different color and printing varieties not referenced by Higgins & Gage. A detailed examination of the addressees may also be fruitful. There is one item sent to the former Argentinian President Carlos Pellegrini. Condition, given the age of the horde, is very good with the occasional edge creases and a very few with small edge tears. As is typical, some items are not cancelled on the stamp but are usually cancelled on the back. This is an excellent lot for somebody to research and break down with the aim of creating a specialized collection or for a dealer to sell the better items on eBay and wholesale the others as small bulk lots. An excellent opportunity at the low estimate. Shipping charges apply - weight 9.2 lbs. (Image) (Image2) (Image3)
