Description

Newfoundland 1859 4d scarlet-vermilion cover sent from St John's to Baltimore, SG4.

1859 (AP 1) outer wrapper from St John’s to Baltimore, 'Tucker' correspondence, endorsed 'pr Mail via Halifax', franked by 1857-64 4d scarlet-vermilion.

A fine quality cover with good to very large margins, except a little close at foot.

The cover is tied by light barred oval, with red despatch circular date stamp (overstruck by '5/BOSTON/BR.PKT.' Entry circular date stamp is dated 'AP 10') alongside.

Vertical filing folds (clear of stamp and postmarks), but very fine for this usage, the stamp being particularly attractive example with lovely colour.

The cover bears one of the first stamp issues of Newfoundland, after becoming self-governing in 1855, which are considered classics of the British Empire with the Royal Crown and Heraldic flowers of Great Britain paying homage to the British Crown.

Provenance: Ex Bill Gross, Hubbard, Carey Fox and Stanley Gibbons.

Accompanied with Royal Philatelic Society (1968) and V.G. Greene (2001) Certificates of Authenticity.
