The Dr. Carmen A. Puliafito Collection of Independent Mails continued...

Pomeroy & Company
Lot Sym. Lot Description  
250 c ImageOffice of Pomeroy & Co. Express. Red negative oval handstamp clearly struck on Oct. 24, 1842 legal-size folded letter from Clarendon N.Y. to Albany, addressed in blue, used to transmit report on Canal to Chief Clerk of Canal Department, file folds far from marking

EXTREMELY FINE. THIS IS THE ONLY RECORDED EXAMPLE OF THE NEGATIVE OVAL HANDSTAMP USED BY POMEROY & COMPANY.

This negative oval and the illustrated locomotive oval are the two rarest types of Pomeroy markings. The David Snow census in the Independent Mails book records just one of this type. It was used by Pomeroy & Co., prior to the Independent Mail period.
