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).

At least one bisected 1854 cover shows identical downward scissor-cutting and separation tear.
