MIXED CURRENCY, British Honduras postal history (Ex ADDISS, FREELAND)
1888 use of QV 1d Post Card with added bisected "2 CENTS" on QV 6d rose P.14 (SG.25) pmk'd "O" obliterator with BELIZE JA 17 88 despatch to Vienna showing Mariahilf, Wien 6 2 88 arrival. Ex ADDISS, FREELAND.
One of only three mixed currency recorded. As of 1st January 1888 CURRENCY CHANGED FROM STERLING TO DOLLARS and CENTS (Guatemalan as its standard). BRH went decimalised on the gold standard equal to U.S. dollars, but the USA told them to get lost, and BRH had to decimalise off the Guatemalan quetzel. The $1.00 US was equal 4/2d (ie 100 d) but the Quetzel was 3/11d (ie 95 d) therefore running at 5% less (eventually allowed to align with gold standard in 1895 at US $1 = 100 d).

1 used BRIDGETOWN, Barbados postmark/cancel (Ex Hurlock)
(C1) on 1854 bisected (2d) greyish slate (SG.4a), very fine used tied Bridgetown "1" obliterator clearly demonstrating the practice of downward scissor-cutting resulting in subsequent tear correctly tied to piece. (Alex Rendon, New York certificate issued 1994). Ex HURLOCK (1958, Lot 72).
Evidence of pre-preparing imperforate stamps by cutting into horizontal strips and scissor cutting vertically between each stamp, for easy separation, is found on FE 16 1860 cover to London (ex Sir James Marshall Robson Lowe May 7 1946, Lot 140) with horiz. pair imperf. 6d pale rose-red scissor-cut vertically about 90 percent with clear separation tear showing at top right corner. At least one bisected 1854 cover shows identical downward scissor-cutting and separation tear.

BARBADOS stamps:
SG UNLISTED 1855-57 diagonally bisected imperforate (1d) deep blue (SG.10a) tied to printed matter piece by Bridgetown "1" obliterator with matching ink colour BARBADOES AP 25 1859 double-arc alongside, further portion of another obliterator at right shows a full (1d) stamp removed for a triple rate, reverse shows (Page) 258. The missing adhesive adds to the authenticity of the piece, and the dbl-arc shows the dent at base as found on full covers for the period.
(Listed under covers for convenience): The Edmund Bayley handbook (Page 27) states: There is only one recorded copy of the deep blue (1d) stamp bisected vertically joined to a whole stamp on part of a newspaper, which bears the "1" numerical cancellation and is dated OC 21 1857. This copy is in the Royal Philatelic Collection. (The bisected 1860 (1d) pin-perf. issues, without datestamps, are catalogued 750.00 on piece).

The UNIQUE QV 1d red INVERTED "S" cover, Montserrat postal history (Ex THOMPSON)
1886 commercial cover to Mrs. Witham, Basseterre, St. Kitts with accepted by Post Office and correctly tied diagonally bisected QV 1d red (SG.8ca) with full QV 1d red with INVERTED "S" (SG.8a) alongside partly pmk'd identically inked "A08" with both MONTSERRAT A/JA 23 86 despatch and ST.

NEW BRUNSWICK postal history (Ex DALE LICHTENSTEIN, CARTIER)
1863 treble rate local cover with exceptionally rare QV 10c red bisected diagonally in se-tenant pair with whole stamp (SG.17) tied by mute grids on orange envelope to Richibucto, flap torn on opening, backstamped weak red KINGSTON and clearer black SHEDIAC both dated JY 20 1863. Ex DALE LICHTENSTEIN (Nov/1868) and CARTIER (Sept/1977 realised 1300). The 10c red bisected on its own (SG.17a, Cat.600 on cover) paying the 5c local rate is commonly found (the bisect being a temporary solution for the suppressed 5c Connell stamp which was never issue, the QV 5c was issued in or around July 18). The 10c alongside a separate 10c bisect on cover is exceptional (one noted dated DE 1860 paying 5c local rate plus 10c registration from Salisbury to Lower Coverdale SG Auction May/1979 realised 1300). Argenti only recorded three examples of the se-tenant 10c pair, one bisected on entire. The two other dated covers being FE 14 1861 from W.O. Albert Mines to Hampton paying 5c local, 10c registration (Dale Lichtenstein May/1969 R$525, Sothebys Sept/1984 E800) and a second triple local rate dated MR 30 1865 from St. John to Kingston, Richibucto marked "with note enclosure" no doubt accounting for the extra weight (ex Argenti, Groom, Chester Beatty).
Argenti only recorded three examples of this 15c make-up, two being treble local rate (for letters weighing 1 oz. but not exceeding 1 oz.), and one paying 5c local rate plus 10c registration.
