A FINE APPEARING COPY OF THE HARTFORD MAIL ROUTE STAMP ON PINK GLAZED PAPER -- ONE OF THE RAREST OF ALL INDEPENDENT MAIL STAMPS, WITH APPROXIMATELY FIFTEEN CONFIRMED EXAMPLES, INCLUDING FOUR GENUINELY USED ON COVERS.

The monograph by Richard C. Frajola on the Hartford Mail Route lists four covers with the Pink stamp, as follows: 1) "West", Pos. 7, Hartford Nov. 21, 1844, folded letter with address cut out, ex Hall, the cover offered here; 2) "West", Pos. 8, on 1844 folded cover to J.L.L.F. Warren, Boston, red Hale & Co. Hartford oval, ex Conland; 3) "East", Pos. 5, Hartford Jun. 23, 1845, to Eliha Geer, Boston, pencil "postage 2c", ex Conland; and 4) "West", Pos. 2, undated folded cover to Boston, red Hale & Co. Hartford oval, ex Chapman, Caspary. In addition to the four covers listed by Frajola, there are six stamps that, in his opinion, did not originate on the covers to which they are affixed. We also record another half-dozen stamps off cover or on piece.

Ex Hall (acquired from Charles J. Phillips in 1925). With 2001 P.F. certificate (Image)
