1873 Hong Kong 8c Qv On Cover Sent From Foochow To Hong Kong Treaty Port:
$691


This is a very nice Hong Kong 8c QV (Scott #13) on a folded wrapper sent from Amoy to Hong Kong on April 9, 1873. The wrapper is endorsed to be carried on the Ocean Queen, and the wrapper is datelined as originating in Amoy. The 8c stamp paid the 1/2 ounce rate from Treaty Ports to Hong Kong. This rate was in effect until 1876. Webb states as follows about mail originating in Amoy:
"The latest date recorded for AMOY PAID in July 1867, but the earliest A1 cover is 1876. However, covers identifiable as having originated from Amoy with adhesives cancelled B62 are known for nearly every year between 1867 and 1876 inclusive. It seems, therefore, that, as in the case of the other Treaty Port killers, for a period of about fourteen years after the introduction of adhesives all mail from Amoy had to be sent to Hong Kong for cancellation."
Webb then lists the range of known dates for use of the B62 killer on covers originating from Amoy as being Feb. 3, 1867 to July 26, 1876. This cover falls within that range. This is a rare example of early mail sent from the Treaty Port Amoy to Hong Kong.
I don't sell on very often, but when the wife says "sell them or I burn them", it's time to sell. I am a collector who sometimes buys large lots for enjoyment. What you see here is something from those lots that does not quite fit into my collecting interests or is duplicate material. I have been a collector for 45+ years, a member of German Colonies Collector's Group, etc. Regular postage in the US is $2, overseas $3. This is for shipping at buyer's risk. For lots costing $50 or more, I send by priority mail in the US and by registered mail overseas, at my cost plus $1. I combine shipping for multiple lots. Payment via Paypal. Thanks for offerding!
