.

ONE OF ONLY EIGHT RECORDED EXAMPLES OF THIS BISECT ON COVER, INCLUDING THE OTHER HALF OF THIS STAMP.

This cover is number L5 of the 8 recorded London shilling bisect covers in Odenweller. This left half offered here is the matching half to the right-half example L4 in the census. This was listed by Mottram in London Philatelist, Vol. 4, May 1895 on page. 125.

Although the 1s value was issued in 1855, no usages are known until after the change of rate that allowed prepayment of 6d per ½ ounce on March 27th 1857. Most of the earliest uses of the 1s were not full stamps, but the celebrated shilling bisects from the Mottram correspondence. Bisects were authorized by the postmaster at Port Chalmers to economize on the use of the 2d stamps.

A constant flaw, noted from the London printings but more difficult to see in the later printings. Characteristics are two colored spots close together, the right spot higher than the left, on the Queen's neck within the arc of the necklace. Likely caused by foreign material creating pits in the plate at the time of manufacture.
