187 c ImageForwarded by Hale & Co. "Nantucket" in Manuscript. Red oval handstamp, modified by removing lower portion and inserting "Nantucket" by hand, matching red "Collect 6 Cents for N. Bedford Office" framed handstamp on Jan. 10, 1845 folded letter from Nantucket to Providence R.I.

EXTREMELY FINE. POSSIBLY THE FINEST OF THE FOUR RECORDED EXAMPLES OF THE HALE & COMPANY OVAL HANDSTAMP WITH "NANTUCKET" MANUSCRIPT NAME.

Elliott Perry reported that "Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays, the steamer Massachusetts connected at New Bedford with the train from Boston in the morning and to Boston in the evening."

Gutman records four covers with the "Nantucket" office oval marking. The manuscript "Wareham" office name was also inserted into this blank oval handstamp, which has the same break in the right side (see lot 188). It is possible that the Hale agent in New Bedford used a utility oval and inserted the originating office name in manuscript.

188 c ImageForwarded by Hale & Co., "Wareham" in Manuscript. Red oval handstamp, modified by removing lower portion and inserting "Wareham" by hand, matching red "Paid" handstamp on Apr. 15, 1845 folded letter from Wareham to New Bedford Mass.

VERY FINE. THIS IS THE ONLY RECORDED EXAMPLE OF THE HALE & COMPANY OVAL HANDSTAMP WITH "WAREHAM" MANUSCRIPT NAME.

In both his Hale and Independent Mails books, Gutman records this cover as the only known example of the Wareham office oval marking (illustrated in Hale book on p. 219). The manuscript "Nantucket" office name was also inserted into this blank oval handstamp, which has the same break in the right side (see lot 187). It is possible that the Hale agent in New Bedford used a utility oval and inserted the originating office name in manuscript.
