    Losnr. : 5537 Jungfern Inseln/Virgin Islands

    1864 (Oct 28): Cover from Tortola to Liverpool prepaid in red manuscript '1/1 d.' with 1 s. prepaid and 1 d. Colonial credit, struck with very fine strike of the extremely rare single ring "♚ / PAID / AT / TORTOLA" handstamp in red, with fair strike of 'London EC / Paid' arrival cds below (Nov 15) in red. Reverse with TORTOLA despatch cds (Oct 28) clearly struck and Liverpool cds (Nov 16) both in black. Slight file fold but Charles Freeland / Parmenter & Gordon on page 6/29 where this cover is illustrated and discussed "an outstanding and highly important rarity", record just two items with this handstamp, one of which is only a front, thus this is the unique example on full cover Gi = £ 22'000.rnProvenance: Spink, London, June 2011.
