    Lot 3087

    THE QUEEN VICTORIA ISSUES, 1859-1861 - CORFU - VERY EARLY USAGE OF THE 1d BLUE ON COVER TO CEPHALONIA; 22 June 1859 EL (reinforced corner-folds but generally fine) from Corfu to "Cefalonia" with good 1859 1d Blue (4 close to wide margins all round; tiny marginal fault at top left) tied by two overlapping strikes of the 2-ring "CORFU" cds in grey-black with a further fine strike in blue alongside, having a mainly fine blue fancy oval Cephalonia arrival d.s. (crease) nearby. An excellent example of this elusive issue well tied by a handstamp on cover. [Initialled "AD" beside the stamp and with experts' tiny red mark and two signatures inside.] Rare and attractive cover with this short-lived and most attractive Perkins Bacon issue; these stamps were in use for less than 5 years, as the islands were finally ceded to Greece on 30 May 1864. Important Exhibition Item.

    Estimate: £3000
    Realised: £3200
