Description: 1890 2d carmine PC3 to Germany with 'ALBANY/JY28/91/WA - KGS' duplex & 'HAMBURG' arrival cds of 2.9.91, minor blemishes. Very rare contemporary usage, absent from Margaret Hamilton's collection: most used examples are later philatelic contrivances. Ex Peter Basterfield (sold for 575) & Dr Ed Druce ($172, where the significance of this item was completely overlooked). [Issued 1/1/1890 for the long sea route to GB. On 1/1/1891, the 2d rate - somewhat inadvertently - was extended to all overseas destinations. Two months later, this error was rectified. From 1/10/1891, the overseas rate became 1d. This item should have been taxed but the rates chaos in mid-1891 probably resulted in many such oversights]
