Paul fraser collectibles

Tristan Da Cunha 1929 stampless cover to USA (SGC7)

PT833

£6,500.00

 

1929 stampless cover to the USA, carried on board the 'Halesius' which arrived at Tristan Da Cunha on 24 May, with two very fine strikes of the rare type Va cachet in magenta (as type V, but without break in inner ring, and damaged 'T', 'C' and 'N'), 'T' in circle between.

Also a London paquebot transit circular date stamp dated '26 JU 29' at the upper right, and a 'New York Due/ 10 / CENTS' paired circles at lower left. 'JUL 8 1929' receiving H/S on reverse.

Trivial peripheral blemishes mentioned for accuracy, still superb.

Probably the finest of the six covers (and the first to be discovered) recorded by Crabb, which mostly have faint strikes.

Illustrated on p.195 of Crabb's 'The History and Postal History of Tristan da Cunha'.

Ex Jack Cole Collection (Stanley Gibbons Auctions 30/10/98, lot 188). Also an ex Stanley Gibbons stock item.
