London 2020 Private Treaty Sale

Lot 29

Bermuda, 1865 (May), mourning cover with Hamilton, Bermuda, datestamp, a lovely small-format envelope addressed to "Miss Till" in St. Georges, bearing at lower left a strike in red of the Hamilton PM4 datestamp (date unclear; May 10?). This is the datestamp type modified by William B. Perot to create his iconic Postmaster's Stamp of 1848-56. Small black wax seal intact on backflap.

A remarkably pristine cover, and interesting collateral material for a Perot exhibit, Very Fine.

Price: $3,000.
