201 CVR 39b image1873 First Packet Principle Cover to Scotland, mailed Port Hastings, Cape Breton on JAN.6.1875 to Edinburgh, Scotland (FEB.1 receiver), through Halifax (JAN.14) and Liverpool (FEB.1). The cover is franked with a single 6c brown Small Queen perforated 11½ x 12 (two dot state), supposed to go by the Allan Line Caspian, but missed the boat, so sent by rail to New York to catch the Cunard ship China under the first Packet principle. Charged "1d" to make up for the correct 8c rate as a result of the redirection to a US Packet. Few stains, still very fine. (Scan a) (Scan b) (All Scans)

205 PC 39b imageMay 1873 6c Post Card Rate to the USA, a P1 post card mailed from Preston Ont. (free strike broken circle in blue dated MAY.12.1873) to Hopedale, Massachusetts, with a 6c yellow brown Small Queen (one dot state, perforated 11½ x 12) placed right over the 1c, mailed at a time where post cards to the US were treated as letters (at the 6c rate). There were still no 5c stamps issued at this time, so a 6c was used on top of the 1c, as opposed to having been uprated by 5c, so could be considered as 1c overpaid. Written up on page, very fine and rare. Illustrated in H&N, page 148. (Scan a)
