Stock Code: P178003280

1859 (SP 8) cover from Ireland Island to England, endorsed "Paid", with very fine strike of "PAID/AT/IRELAND ISLE BERMUDA" crowned circle in red at lower left, and "6d" H/S in same colour at upper right. The reverse with very fine "IRELAND-ISLE/BERMUDA" black despatch cds (type PM5), and Castle Eden Station and Ferry Hill (Co. Durham) arrival cds (both dated "OC 4") in shades of green. Minor stains, nevertheless a particularly neat cover, with choice examples of the three Bermuda markings, and the earliest use of the "6d" H/S recorded by Forand and Freeland on a cover from this office. Rare and desirable, ex Sir Henry Tucker (second sale, April 1979, Harmer NY). [Carried by "Delta" (9 Sep) to Halifax N.S. (13 Sep) and thence by packet "Europa" to Liverpool (arrived 2 Oct)].
