GB 1840 Pre-Stamp - Todmorden Uniform Penny Post 'P2' handstamp
Stock Code: P201006441
1840 Uniform Penny Post. Very fine entire from Todmorden to Halifax bearing a very fine strike of the 'P2' (type d) handstamp with a matching 'Todmorden/Penny Post' at left, blue Halifax receiving cds for MY.5.1840. Offered with a front to London showing the matching Todmorden 'P1' handstamp dated April 1840. Very rare, the P2 handstamp is unrecorded in the county catalogues, and this specific example was the source of the illustration in Walker and is probably unique. Ex Peter Chadwick FRPSL Gold Medal Collection.
