729 ng ImageNew York N.Y., 5c Black on Blue, Without Signature (9X2d). Position 32, unused (no gum), ample to full margins, proof-like impression on deeply blued paper, small shallow scuffs at top (probably from adherence)

VERY FINE MARGINS AND CONDITION DESPITE TINY SCUFFS. ONE OF FOUR RECORDED UNUSED EXAMPLES OF THE 5-CENT NEW YORK POSTMASTER'S PROVISIONAL ON BLUE PAPER WITHOUT SIGNATURE -- ONLY TWO OTHER USED EXAMPLES ON BLUE PAPER WITHOUT SIGNATURE ARE RECORDED.

The last printing of the New York provisional took place on January 7, 1847, when 100 sheets were delivered. Philip T. Wall believes that the stamps on Blue paper (Scott 9X2) and Gray paper (Scott 9X3) come from this last printing, because the recorded covers are used after that date. Most of the known Without Signature stamps originate from the early days following the initial sale date of July 14, 1845. However, a few examples of both the Blue and Gray paper stamps are known without signature, so if Wall is correct that these stamps come from the last printing, then clearly the signing standards were not strictly followed.

We record four unused and two used examples of 9X2d:

1) Unused, Position unknown, ex Boker, Chronicle 115, p. 161, figure C

2) Unused, Position 15, Dr. Kapiloff collection (Piller book, p. 46, figure 53)

3) Unused, Position 25, PFC 501335, ex Frelinghuysen (Siegel Sale 1020, lot 31)

4) Unused, Position 32, the stamp offered here

5) Red "Paid" arc cancel, light horizontal crease at top, PFC 287925

6) Red "Paid" arc cancel, Position 4, PFC 264805, ex Dr. Morris (Siegel Sale 793, lot 13)

When the stamp listed as #3 above was offered in our sale of the Frelinghuysen collection, we were unaware of the existence of this stamp. Our current count of four unused and two used examples of 9X2d (Blue paper without signature) is unlikely to be increased by more than one or two. (Image)
