2321 imageHiye-Maru Seapost Nippon cover: 1935 (Aug. 1) to Kentucky, An all-commemorative franking, comprising 3s and 6s Red Cross issues plus a 1½s Enthronement of Emperor Hirohito, thus overpaying the international rate by ½s.

2323 imageHie-Maru Seapost Nippon cover: 1939 (Apr. 17) to Oklahoma, An interesting cover from the respelled Hiye-Maru. The Hie-Maru's post office opened on March 24, 1938, but nearly 14 months later the ship was still using its original "Hiye"-inscribed Sea Post Nippon Scenic Datestamp! The cachet of a building overlooking the sea has a printed inscription, blue "To US" handstamp and two strikes of the old-spelling cancel tying the three definitives—though Lewis has respelled the ship's name correctly. "C-6.n." typed on reverse, with small-capitals "open this" and vertical kan handstamped in blue. Neatly opened at top. JP 34:6, p. 286 indicates that there is no certain date for the issuance of a "Hie-Maru" Scenic Datestamp. One to research! Very Fine.

Fuji with tree line and ship in foreground, with typed inscriptions and blue "To US" handstamps, but showing two different C-2 combinations. The 1934 cover has the standard five-stamp franking, while the 1935 cover has a 4s Mt. Fuji & Deer, two 1½s Tazawas and a single 3s Tazawa; 10s either way in total, but a mix of frankings that must have been maddening to keep track of. Combinations noted as "C - 2 ." on 1934, "C-2." on 1935, each with typed ") N (" and "Do not open" penciled in below. Both still vibrant., Very Fine.

The cover to Kansas dated April 29, 1935, has two trees on a hill, with "C-1" combination. That to Illinois (Oct. 25, 1935) shows a building overlooking the sea with "C-2." notation. And the 1938 cover (May 12) to Washington, DC, sports the right-hand cachet with a "C-5.n." franking for 20s. Illinois cover shows some slight toning, while the other two are clean and bright. A nice Tatsuta-Maru mini-collection., Very Fine overall.

Two different cachets, each with printed inscription and blue "To US" handstamp. "Sp'l." added in blue ink by hand to the back of the 1935 cover, which has a few spots of toning and a small inconsequential tear on the top. The 1936 cover is pristine.

2337 imageAmerican Mail Liners: 1935-36 trio of same-yet-different C-9 combinations, Clear evidence that Lewis' C-numbers depended on denomination rather than issue specifics. Each of the three covers here (President McKinley, Sept. 7, 1935, to Ohio; President Jackson, Dec. 14, 1935, to Oklahoma; and President Jefferson, Mar. 21, 1936, to New Jersey) with a typed "C-9." notation on reverse, each bearing two 1½s Tazawas either side of a 7s of the same issue. The 1½s stamps, however, differ on each cover: booklet singles (corners both!) on the McKinley, coils (see his commentary on these in letters in Lots 2183 & 2361) on the Jackson, and sheet singles on the Jefferson. Coil and booklet singles are much less common on Lewis' covers. Each a matching cachet with various seals used on the back, the Jackson sporting a cut-out from an advertisement showing a Dollar Line steamer underway. A great opportunity for the specialist—or to complete your set of American Mail Liner covers to Mr. Brown of Ohio (see Lot 2331 above)., Very Fine.
