image 1845: Entire letter from Zante to Cefalonia prepaid 'd1' in manuscript struck with very fine "♚ / PAID / AT / ZANTE" in black with hooded datestamps of both Zante and Cefalonia poorly struck on obverse. A superb genuine strike of this scarce marking Gi = £ 1'400.rnProvenance: Collection Grant Glassco, RL, London, 25-27 Nov 1969, lot 1214.rnNote: The SG footnote, repeated from Robson Lowe's Encyclopaedia is correct, the 'Paid at Zante' Crowned Circle can be found struck in black creating forged covers. The example offered above we are confident is genuine, however Parmenter & Gordon whilst omitting this information from their opus do, inadvertently but helpfully, illustrate a forged impression of this handstamp on page 1/67 which was ex E.E. Yates and 'Beaver Creek' and shows no pre-payment and is without definition in the Crown.rnrn (Image 1) (Image 2) (Image 3) (Image)
