Auction: 204 - Lot number: 495 << Previous   Next >>

Description: 1857 small local cover with Emblems Imperf 1d pair (margins good to large) tied by BN '3' of 'CASTLEMAINE' (oval b/s), two very fine strikes of the unframed-oval 'ADVERTISED/AND/UNCLAIMED' h/s. Delightful. [Many itinerant goldminers had their mail addressed to the closest post office. As there was no delivery and notification system, acceptance of mail required the personal attendance of the addressee. Often, unsuccessful miners moved to "greener pastures" without advising the post office of their whereabouts (often unknown in advance). Ken Barelli's similar cover sold at the Prestige auction of 2/5/2014 for $1265]
