Session Three (lots 360-563): Thursday, October 29, 2020, at 1:30pm continued...

On Cover: 5¢ and 10¢ Combination Frankings
Lot Sym. Lot Description  
425° c Image5¢ and 10¢ 1847 Issue combination with Greenwich, New York, target fancy cancels and "V" 5¢ rate handstamp on a multiple-rate cover

5¢ Red Brown, 10¢ Black (1, 2), 5¢ three large margins and in at left, worn-plate impression and very pale shade, affixed slightly over 10¢ which appears to have clear to full margins, cancelled by red 4-ring target cancels, matching "Greenwich N.Y. Feb. 8" (1851) circular datestamp and "V" 5¢ rate Roman numeral rate handstamp on long folded letter to North Adams, Massachusetts, 5¢ small corner crease at bottom left, 10¢ pressed-out vertical crease at left, some splitting along folds is expertly reinforced

Fine and scarce combination of stamps with unusual target cancel of Greenwich, New York.

The two stamps were intended to pay the triple 5¢ under-300 miles for 1.5 ounces, but the half-ounce rate increments were eliminated in March 1849, so this was handstamped with the "V" 5¢ rate marking, either to indicate additional postage paid or (more likely) due from addressee.

426° c Image1847 Issue 5¢ and 10¢ franking, paying the obsolete five-times rate and rated due 5¢

5¢ Red Brown, 10¢ Black (1, 2), including two 10¢, right 10¢ ample to large margins, others large margins to slightly in, 5c light shade and late impression from cleaned plate, tied by red grid cancels, matching "Rouse's Point N.Y. Mar. 4" (1851) circular datestamp on legal-size buff envelope to Plattsburgh, New York, manuscript "Due 5c" also ties 5¢ stamp, sender's notation "Deposited in P.O. March 3, 1851 C. M. Gates P.M.", left 10¢ pre-use horizontal crease, some overall wear

Very Fine--a remarkable combination cover of the 5¢ and 10¢ 1847 Issue, franked to pay the obsolete five-times rate.

The 25¢ in postage was intended to pay the five-times 5¢ under-300 miles for 2.5 ounces, but the half-ounce rate increments were eliminated in March 1849, so this was re-rated as a six-times rate letter with 5¢ due.
