89 c ImageHale & Co., 5c Red on Bluish (75L2). Three, each with mostly ample to large square margins, bright shades on very thin paper (possibly pelure), each stamp has a manuscript "T" control initial applied by Hale's Northampton agent A. W. Thayer, each stamp also cancelled by manuscript "C" initial (Connecticut River?), bold red "Forwarded by Hale & Co. from Northampton" oval handstamp on legal-size folded letter datelined "Northampton Dec 17, 1844", addressed to Lenox Mass., letter mentions enclosing two deeds (thus the triple rate), vertical file folds thru two of the stamps, negligible stain spots

VERY FINE OVERALL CONDITION. THIS IS THE ONLY RECORDED COVER TO BEAR THE LARGEST NUMBER OF HALE & COMPANY'S 5-CENT RED STAMP. ONE OF THE MOST OUTSTANDING HALE COVERS EXTANT.

Hale & Co. maintained an office in Northampton Mass., located about 17 miles north of Springfield on the Connecticut River. The office address was 17 Shop Row, and the agent was A. W. Thayer. All or some of the stamps that originated from this office have the initial "T" applied in manuscript, orientated to the design. Stamped letters that passed through the Northampton office were cancelled with a manuscript "C" of uncertain meaning (possibly Connecticut River).

Multiple-rate frankings with the Red stamp are extremely rare. Only a few with two stamps are recorded (one with a pair), and this cover is the only one with more than two.

Illustrated in Gutman Hale book (page 182) where described as the only known cover to Lenox and the largest franking with the Red stamp. Ex Schwartz. (Image)

95   ImageHale & Co., 5c Red on Bluish (75L2). Top sheet margin and large margins all around, vivid color, manuscript "W" initial for Worcester, probably applied as a cancel, affixed over file fold on Nov. 16, 1844 folded letter to Boston, red "Hale & Co.'s Mail Worcester" red oval handstamp -- the stamp is unaffected by the fold and Worcester often applied its oval without any Collect box or rate marking -- these two circumstances are reasons for us to offer this as an off-cover stamp in Extremely Fine condition, but the 2001 P.F. certificate states "genuine usage", ex Hall (Image)
