Walter, Inspector of Police, "Georgetown/Grand Cayman/MR 11 10" c.d.s. receiving pmk., Type 5, cover with slight edge wear and stamps affixed slightly over the edge nibbing a few perfs., very fine; this is the first type of rural collection marking used on the route from Boddentown to Georgetown, in itself it is a rare marking with only 31 covers recorded, but this cover is especially desirable being a commercial usage, plus being the earliest recorded usage on the one farthing value, which was issued especially for this rural domestic service, requiring two in this case to pay the new 1/2p domestic letter rate; ex-Cooley (Scot #31). (Image) Est. 1,500-2,000

SOLD for $1,300.00
Will close during Public Auction
2369 c image"Rural Post/Collection/Grand Cayman" violet boxed handstamp, Type RP1, a most unusual official cover endorsed "O.H.M.S.", without franking as was proper for a domestic usage (the usually seen franked O.H.M.S. covers had stamps because they were foreign mail), posted to Georgetown with a doubling of the marking, one being clear and readable, not having a receiving postmark so undated, mounting thins on the reverse, otherwise very fine; a very rare official posting along this rural route from Boddentown to Georgetown; ex-"Rew", Green.

2370 c image"East End/Grand Cayman/Rural/Post Gollection" boxed violet handstamp, Type RP2, a sharp early strike tying a 1907 1/2p Green (S.G. #25) to early 1911 cover to Georgetown, "Boddentown/Grand Cayman/AP 12 11" c.d.s. transit at left, Type 2, and similar Type 5 Georgetown receiving pmk. of the same date, addressed to M. McTaggart, Esq. in Georgetown, slight wrinkles to cover and reduced a bit at left, markings are clear and attractive, very fine; this rare marking was placed on covers by the "Wagoner" for mail that was collected between East End and Boddentown, only about 40 covers are recorded with this marking; it is not known how early the marking was placed in use but this is one of the earliest dates (only March 8, 1911 being earlier) and this pre-dates the earliest date of January 17, 1912 for this value listed by Giraldi and McCann; a lovely and very rare commercial cover of this domestic 1/2p domestic rate; ex-Green (Scott #21).

2371 c image"East End/Grand Cayman/Rural/Post Gollection" boxed violet handstamp, Type RP2, tying a 1912 1/2p Green (S.G. #41) to commercial cover addressed to E. N. McLaughlin in Georgetown, "Boddentown/Grand Cayman/AP 3 14" c.d.s. transit on the reverse, Type 2, and a portion of a similar Type 5 Georgetown backstamp of the same date, vertical crease to cover at right and small edge tear at top with a part of the backflap missing, fine and rare cover being a rather late use of this marking as most are known from 1913 or earlier, but still quite clear even though deteriorating and still showing the miss-spelling of "Gollection" for "Collection" (Scott #33). (Image) Est. 1,000-1,500

2372 c image"East End/Grand Cayman/Rural/Post Gollection" boxed violet handstamp, Type RP2, a perfect early strike tying a 1907 1p Carmine (S.G. #26) to cover to Kingston, Jamaica with both Boddentown and Georgetown double circle c.d.s. of October 25, 1911, Types 2 and 5 postmarks respectively, with slightly smudged strike of boxed "Advertised" handstamp and choice strike of "Unclaimed" handstamp on the front, manuscript ""Not Known" on the reverse with numerous transits and backstamps on the reverse for its return, red crayon "Miss. Jessica Laturn/East End" at top left, probably put on by the postman who would have known who originally sent it, light cover creases, otherwise very fine; an extremely rare and one of the most interesting and unusual foreign mail usages of this marking paying the 1p Empire letter rate, it pre-dates the October 16, 1912 date listed for this value by Giraldi and McCann, but this maybe should be 1911 since that work illustrates this cover; 1992 RPS certificate; ex-Rohloff, Marston and Prappas (Scott #22). (Image) Est. 2,000-3,000

2373 c image"East End/Grand Cayman/Rural/Post Gollection" boxed violet handstamp, Type RP2, nice strike on 1909 1p Carmine postal card to Georgetown, "Boddentown/Grand Cayman/FE 1 13" c.d.s. transit below, Type 2, and a similar Type 5 Georgetown receiving c.d.s. at left of February 3rd, couple of trivial card bends, but overall a crisp and very fine postal card; overpaid as the domestic postal card/printed matter rate at this time was only 1/4p, but message on the reverse reveals that this is actually a legitimate commercial usage as the correspondent is ordering a pair of men's boots, size 8, from the merchant C. H. Bodden & Co. in Georgetown, extremely rare as there are only two or three examples of this card used from East End on the rural route. (Image) Est. 1,000-1,500

2376 c image"West Bay/Grand Cayman/Rural/Post Collection" boxed violet handstamp, Type RP3, three quite clear strikes of this rarest of the rural post markings which are frequently hard to read, tying a 1907-08 1/2p Green pair, 1p Carmine and 2 1/2p Ultramarine (S.G. #25, 26, 27) to neat registered cover to the United States, blue "Grand Cayman" registry etiquette at left, Type R3, "Georgetown/Grand Cayman/AU 17 12" Type 5 c.d.s. transit on the reverse, plus New York registry transits and backstamped Pittsburgh, an exceptionally handsome registered cover, very fine; this cover was posted on the rural route that ran between West Bay and Georgetown, little is known about this route except that the marking is very similar to the East End rural post marking but is actually much more illusive; the cover offered here is outstanding in the respect that this is the only known registered cover bearing this rural marking, plus also being highly unusual on a foreign mail cover paying the 2 1/2p foreign letter rate to the United States with 2p registry fee; a wonderful rural post exhibition piece; illustrated in Giraldi and McCann; ex-Green (Scott #21, 22, 23). (Image) Est. 2,000-3,000

2377 c image"West Bay/Grand Cayman/Rural/Post Collection" boxed violet handstamp, Type RP3, an exceptionally clear strike of this very difficult rural post marking, especially nice when one realizes how frequently it comes poorly struck, on a fantastic 1/4p Brown postal card in the taller 115x89mm format, "Georgetown/Grand Cayman/JA 18 13" Type 5 receiving c.d.s. at left, extremely fine in all respects; a lovely commercial use of this postal card exactly as it was intended to be used, posted to the general merchants of C. H. Bodden & Co. with the message "Please send me by Henry one bbl 'Meriam' flour, Yrs. J. T. Ebanks", this is the only date recorded for this postal card with this incredibly rare West Bay rural post marking; a fabulous rural post and postal stationery rarity. (Image) Est. 2,000-3,000
