558° c ImageAn early and colorful 1847 Issue cover to Germany with a 5¢ pair in the early Red Brown shade and brilliant red Mobile, Alabama, markings

5¢ Red Brown (1), horizontal pair, large margins to clear, sharp early impression and Deep Red Brown shade, tied by vivid red grid cancels, matching "Mobile Ala. Feb. 1" (1848) circular datestamp on green folded letter datelined "New Orleans 31 January 1848" to Bremen, Germany, sender's directive "pr Boston Steamer" at upper left, carried on the Cunarder Acadia, departing Boston February 12, 1848, and arriving Liverpool February 26, red London backstamp (Feb. 26), manuscript "1/8" British due, red crayon "48" grote due from recipient, cover with trivial erosion spot at bottom center

Very Fine and a remarkably beautiful cover--carried outside the mails from New Orleans to Mobile, then by the U.S. Post Office to Boston, and from there to England by British steamer for further transport to Bremen via Belgium.

There are 38 covers (or fronts only) to the German States with 1847 Issue stamps reported by Burkhard Krumm in Chonicle 267, two of which have not been confirmed with sufficient information. The cover offered here is the third earliest. The two earlier covers have a single 10¢ (September 13, 1847) and single 5¢ (September 28, 1847). Mr. Krumm illustrated and described this cover in his first article on the subject in Chronicle 256:

A horizontal pair of 5¢ stamps paid the over-300-mile rate to Boston, where the cover was likely put on board the Cunard Acadia, which sailed February 12 and arrived in Liverpool on February 26. There is a London transit marking on the back. This letter was sent under the 1846 Anglo-Prussian convention route via Belgium. A London clerk penned a 1/8 debit to Prussia indicating a letter weighing less than #U00BC ounce. This represented 1 shilling transatlantic packet, 6 pence British, and 2 pence Belgian transit. This added up to 40 Bremen grote, to which 8 grote was added for German internal postage. The total due of 48 grote was written in red crayon at the bottom center. This is the earliest of nine 1847 covers going to Bremen [still correct], one of the two dominating destinations of the covers in this article. Along with Hamburg, Bremen at this time was one of the two most important trading ports within the German States."

559° c Image5¢ 1847 on folded letter to Germany, carried by Ohio River steamboat to Cincinnati--the only recorded 1847 cover to Germany with a "Steam" marking

5¢ Red Brown (1), huge margins all around, bright shade approaching Orange Brown, worn-plate impression, deeply blued paper--we consider this a Scott 1b--pre-printing paper folds at top, cancelled by red grid, matching "Cincinnati O. 5cts. Jan. 2" (1851) circular datestamp on blue folded letter originating in Louisville, Kentucky, and sent to Bremen, Germany, bold red "STEAM" handstamp, sender's routing instructions "Pr first Steamer via Liverpool and Ostende", carried on the Cunarder Niagara, departing Boston January 15, 1851, arriving Liverpool January 27, red London backstamp (Jan. 28), manuscript "1/4" for British postage and red crayon "40" grote due from recipient, light file fold clear of stamp, the stamp with very slight negligible creasing (may all be pre-printing paperfolds)

Very Fine and spectacular 1847 Issue cover to Bremen, Germany, with the Cincinnati "STEAM" handstamp--the only recorded 1847 cover to Germany with a "Steam" marking.

This striking cover to Bremen, Germany, originated in Louisville and was carried by steamboat up the Ohio River to Cincinnati, where it entered the mails. The Cincinnati post office applied the "STEAM" handstamp to indicate it had been received from a steamboat captain. The cover went by mail to Boston and was carried to Liverpool for further transport to Bremen via Belgium.

There are 38 covers (or fronts only) to the German States with 1847 Issue stamps reported by Burkhard Krumm in Chonicle 267, two of which have not been confirmed with sufficient information. This is the only recorded 1847 cover to Germany with a "Steam" handstamp.

560° c ImageThe only recorded transatlantic use of the 1847 Issue from New Jersey and one of only two 1847 covers to the German State of Wurttemberg

5¢ Red Brown (1), horizontal pair, ample to immense margins including top sheet margin, light shade and worn-plate impression, just touched at lower right, tied by neat blue rimless grid cancels, matching bold "Trenton N.J. Apr. 29" (1851) circular datestamp on buff legal-size cover to Ahldorf, Wurttemberg, Germany, sender's routing instructions "Pr Havre Packet" and "Via Havre", carried on the Havre Line's Humbolt, departing New York May 6, 1851, arriving Havre May 19, red "Outre Mer Le Havre 22 Mai 51" arrival datestamp, German rate markings, missing part of top flap, slightly reduced at right, some slight cover soiling, stamps with few faults

Very Fine appearance--this is the only recorded transatlantic use of the 1847 Issue originating in New Jersey, and it is one of only two 1847 covers addressed to the German State of Wurttemberg.

There are 38 covers (or fronts only) to the German States with 1847 Issue stamps reported by Burkhard Krumm in Chonicle 267, two of which have not been confirmed with sufficient information. As noted, only this cover originated in New Jersey and only two are to Wurttemberg, but it also appears that this cover is the only one with intact stamps that was carried on the Havre Line (another with a fragment of the 5¢ is recorded).

561° c ImagePair of 5¢ 1847 First Printing Orange Brown on cover to Austria via England

5¢ Orange Brown (1b), horizontal pair, remarkably beautiful rich color and detailed proof-like impression from First Printing, large margins to clear, negligible tiny tear at bottom left and pre-use crease at right, tied by red square grid cancels, matching "New-York Sep. 15" (1847) circular datestamp on folded letter to Trieste, Austria, via London, to the firm of Lang Freeland & Co., sender's directive "p 'Caledonia' via Boston" and carried on that Cunarder, departing Boston September 16, 1847, arriving Liverpool September 29, red and black British backstamps (Sep. 29 and 30), red Trieste backstamp (Oct. 9), various manuscript rates including "2/-" shilling marking crossed out, final charge of 3f6 due from recipient

Very Fine--a wonderful and early double-rate 1847 cover to England, which was redirected to Trieste, which at the time was part of Austria.

The Lang Freeland & Company correspondence is well-known to philatelists, because of the recorded existence of 16 covers with New York Postmaster Provisional stamps, all addressed to the firm in London, most of which were redirected to Trieste. By the time the 1847 Issue was available, the correspondence evidently tapered off, because only one cover to Trieste is known with 1847 stamps--the cover offered here-- with a beautiful pair of 5¢ stamps in the distinctive First Printing Orange Brown shade.
