Session Two (lots 209-359): Wednesday, October 28, 2020, at 1:30pm continued...

Use of Demonetized Stamps after June 30, 1851
Lot Sym. Lot Description  
355°   ImageA remarkable 5¢ 1847 stamp with a New York Foreign Mail Geometric Rosette cancellation used nearly a quarter-century after demonetization

5¢ Red Brown (1), three clear margins, just in at bottom, cleaned-plate impression and strong reddish color, bold strike of black New York Foreign Mail Geometric Rosette cancel (Weiss GE-EP3), small thin spot at bottom left, small horizontal crease

Fine appearance--obviously a very late use of the demonetized 1847 Issue and the only example of an 1847 stamp with a New York Foreign Mail cancel of this style.

According to Nick Kirke's study of New York Foreign Mail cancellations, the earliest reported use of this cancel is on September 22, 1875, nearly 25 years after demonetization. An example of this exact cancel on a cover dated May 1, 1876, is shown below, along with an overlay of the 5¢ stamp (the cover is in the Kirke collection and not part of this lot).

Ex Creighton C. Hart and Wade E. Saadi. With 1990 P.S.E. and 1992 P.F. certificates. (Image)
