1857-60 Issue
Lot Sym. Lot Description

FINE APPEARING AND RARE ORIGINAL-GUM EXAMPLE OF THE 1857 PERFORATED ONE-CENT TYPE Ia.

Type Ia was produced by only 18 of the 20 bottom-row positions on Plate 4. Although Plate 4 was designed with sufficient space to accommodate perforations, the height of the top row and bottom row positions resulted in the perforations often cutting into the design at either top or bottom.

Small backstamp. Scott value $42,500.00 (Image)

64 c Image10c Green, Ty. V (35). Vertical strip of three, used with 3c Dull Red, Ty. III (26), tied by "Augusta Me. Mar. 15" (1860) circular datestamps on cover to the Third Assistant Engineer James Atkins aboard the U.S.S. Mohican at St. Paul de Loando, West Coast of Africa, with original 1860-dated enclosure, interesting contents, missing top flap

VERY FINE. A RARE USE OF THE 1857 ISSUE ON A COVER TO THE UNITED STATES NAVY SLOOP-OF-WAR MOHICAN, WHICH WAS PATROLLING THE WATERS OFF THE WEST COAST OF AFRICA IN SEARCH OF SLAVE-TRADING VESSELS.

St. Paul de Loando was the capital of the Portuguese colony of Angola and a known area of activity for slave traders. The cover is addressed to Third Assistant Engineer James Atkins on the U.S.S. Mohican, which was patrolling the waters off the African coastline, and was written by his brother. Later this same year the Mohican captured the slave-carrying ship Erie, whose captain, Nathaniel Gordon, was hanged in 1862, the first man condemned under an 1820 Federal law declaring slave-trading a form of piracy. In August 1861 she departed the African coast to take part in the Battle of Port Royal and blockade duty in the Civil War.

68   Image90c Blue (39). Centered slightly to right and bottom, vivid red grid cancel, completely sound

FINE. FAR SUPERIOR TO THE TYPICAL CONDITION OF A GENUINELY USED 90-CENT 1860 ISSUE.

The 90c stamp was issued in 1860, along with the 24c and 30c values, all of which were needed to prepay high international letter rates established by various postal treaties. The basic 24c and 30c rates to England, France and Germany created a volume of mail franked with those values. However, the 90c saw much more limited use, partly due to the rates in effect, but more because of the American Civil War. When supplies of current postage stamps were declared invalid in the South and ultimately demonetized by the Federal government, the 90c had been in use for only one year. For this reason, genuinely cancelled copies are scarce, and covers bearing the 90c are extremely rare. Approximately 180 used examples have been certified by The Philatelic Foundation, of which only one-quarter are sound. This sound stamp with a vivid red cancel is very desirable.

With 2009 P.S.E. certificate (Image)
