VERY FINE. A RARE AND DESIRABLE BISECTED USE OF THE 12-CENT 1851 ISSUE FROM SONORA, CALIFORNIA. ONE OF ONLY SEVEN LEGITIMATELY USED BISECTS FROM SONORA, AND OFFERED TO THE MARKET FOR THE FIRST TIME SINCE 1957.

The 12c stamp was bisected to pay the 6c transcontinental rate, effective July 1, 1851, due to a shortage of 3c and 1c stamps. Seven bisects are known used from Sonora, five of which have the Sonora straightline datestamp. The Jarvis family, the source of the covers, owned 60 acres of land in California named Vine Springs, on which they grew grapes and made wine (http://www.cagenweb.com/tuolumne/bio4.htm).

Last offered to the market in October 1957, in Siegel Sale 203. That auction contained a specialized holding of 12 1851-57 Issues, including 15 bisect covers. (Image)
