Lot Sym. Lot Description  
50 c Image1c Blue, Ty. IV (9). Position 5L1L, recut once at bottom, large margins to just in at top, tied by "New-York Jul. 15, 1853" year-dated circular datestamp on blue folded printed circular to Chilicothe O.

VERY FINE. ONE OF TWO RECORDED ONE-CENT 1851 ISSUE COVERS WITH THE NEW-YORK 1853 YEAR-DATED CIRCLE. AN OUTSTANDING COVER RELATED TO THE CRYSTAL PALACE EXHIBITION.

Although the exact connection between the 1853 year-dated New York circle and the Crystal Palace exhibition has been debated for years, this example has a clear association. The July 1 circular from Edward Lambert & Company has a printed postscript, which reads "We beg to add, that our Paris Agents have secured for us several styles of goods manufactured for the Crystal Palace Exhibition of this City, which opens of the 15th inst., the sale of which will be consigned exclusively to ourselves." Nesbitt & Co. printed the circular. The Zevely-manufactured 1853 year-dated circle is recorded used from July 11 to 25.
