2020 Rarities of the World continued...

Telegraph, Sanitary Fair
Lot Sym. Lot Description  
261 ngbl ImageColusa, Lake & Mendocino Telegraph Co., 1876, 5c Black (7T1). Complete pane of ten, "P.L.W." handstamp in blue, unused (no gum), Pos. 1 with sealed tear at top, faint stain affects left three stamps in the top row

VERY FINE APPEARANCE. THIS IS THE UNIQUE PANE OF THE COLUSA, LAKE & MENDOCINO 5-CENT TELEGRAPH STAMP, FROM THE JOSIAH K. LILLY COLLECTION. ONE OF THE GREATEST RARITIES OF TELEGRAPH STAMP COLLECTING.

The story of the Colusa, Lake & Mendocino Telegraph Co. issues is told in the Kramer book on page 51, quoting in part from the 1947 Rich monograph. The Colusa, Lake & Mendocino was incorporated in 1875, with 260 miles of line extended through the counties of Colusa, Lake, Mendocino and Napa. Three stamps were issued for prepayment -- 5c, 10c and 25c. Only one example each of the 10c and 25c is known (ex Kramer and Born, Siegel Sale 1102, lots 1065-1066). The 5c is also very scarce. This unique pane of ten is an important Telegraph stamp rarity.
