364 CVR   imageTwo December 26, 1898 Covers Demonstrating a Rate Anomaly, the first is mailed from Hamilton to Scotland (a distance of 3,300 miles), franked with a single 2c Map, the second is mailed from St Thomas to Tara, Ontario (140 miles) franked with a 2c Map plus a 1c Numeral. For a period of one week from DEC.25.1898 to DEC.31.1898 there was an odd situation where the rate for mailing a letter to another country had adopted the Imperial Penny Postage, which was less than mailing a letter to Canada or the US (2c versus 3c). These two very fine covers properly illustrate a discrepancy in the rates during this short-lived period. (Scan a) (Scan b) (All Scans)

377 CVR   imageDecember 25, 1898 "Latchford" Cover to Jamaica, with Reply Cover, first cover was mailed from Ottawa (DEC.25 Bickerdike machine cancel) and addressed to the postmaster in Kingston, Jamaica (JAN.4 receiver, plus two US transits on back). F.R. Latchford was a friend of Postmaster General Mulock and sent covers to various Empire countries on the first day of the Imperial Penny Postage rate, and even though Jamaica did not adopt the new rate until May 1899, the cover was not taxed. Furthermore, the return envelope (which was probably enclosed in the mailed one, as it bears the same handwriting) is franked with a single 1d stamp, deliberately underpaying the return postage. Thirteen covers are known to exist, and nine of these have a reply cover, this being one. On a well described exhibit page, with two light folds on the Map cover and a stain and corner fault on the reply cover, still desirable. Rsv. (Scan a) (Scan b) (Scan c) (All Scans)
