1865 3c rose, tied by a Circle of Wedges cancel on cover from New York City, addressed to a CSA Prisoner of War, James M. Morey, Harts Island, NY Harbor Prison Camp 27 (period docketing dates the cover to 1865). In 1865, as the Civil War was ending, the Federal government used the Island as a prison camp for Confederate soldiers, for four months in 1865. Of the 3,413 captured Confederate soldiers, 235 died. This final POW camp, located on Long Island Sound about twenty miles north of the city wasn't even used until April 1865, the month the Civil War came to an end. Within the four months of its operation, nearly 7 percent of the camp's POWs died. Only 22 covers are reported from this prison; all are from the Morey correspondence (James M. Morey (1844-1923), was captured at Orangeburg, S.C., sent to Harts Island Prison on April 10th and released on June 14th)

Some examples, both with and without the overprint, were given away by Third Asst. Postmaster General Edwin C. Madden. When postal authorities learned of the practice, they destroyed 194 copies and put one pane of 100 into the official archives. At a later date, 97 of these were traded for rarities missing from the archives. Scott notes that "Almost all unused examples of No. 296a have partial or disturbed gum. Values are for examples with full original gum that is slightly disturbed")

1897 Red Revenues, surcharged small "4 cents" on 3c red, unused large part original gum, with some adhesions and faint toning, irregular perforations at top, well centered and fine appearing example of this rare stamp. On February 20, 1897, a new national postal service was inaugurated in China. Prior to this, an order was made with a printer in Japan, but he was unable to supply the stamps in time for the inauguration. Prior to this in 1896, 650,000 Red Revenues had been ordered for a new proposed taxation. Quickly abandoned due to public outcry, these stamps were pressed into service with new overprints for postal use. The Small Format 4c, similar to the other values, were printed in panes of 25. Only two sheets of 100 (200 total) were printed containing four panes each. One of those panes was deemed too light and received an additional violet overprint (Scott 81a; Chan 85a). Therefore, only 175 examples of this rarity were available, obviously with fewer known today due to natural attrition (Chan 85)

ITALY Flight Covers
1925 de Pinedo World Flight, Calcutta to Melbourne, franked with 1/2a and 1 1/2a India King George V definitives, with a red handstamp reading "Italian Consul General's (Melbourne) letter of 12-11-25. / No. 750/11. / Calcutta to Melbourne by Seaplane, 13/5/1925.". Back shows a purple cachet with map "ITALIAN / WORLD AIR / FLIGHT" (also another strike partly visible on front), with green initials of Stephen Smith and the president of the Aero Philatelic Club of India H.A. Outhwaite (these, apparently to prevent duplication). This is the right half of the cover only, as the 93 existing covers had all been intentionally cut in half, as they had been signed by de Pinedo after a promised charity donation had failed (the half with his signature is missing). Accompanied by a copy of a fairly contemporary article written on these interesting covers. This one is numbered 77 (out of 93), v.f.

A rare usage from a Spanish military hospital (when the War broke, the sender was in Tomaszow Mazowiecki. He crossed Hungary, Yugoslavia, Italy, and got to France, where he joined the Polish Army and was employed in the French defense industry. When France capitulated he was in Brittany. He got across to the unoccupied territories and was demobilized in Toulouse. For a time he was in an internment camp in the South of France and in February 1941 crossed the Pyrenees into Spain. He and other Polish men were detained and arrested 30 km from Figueras. Next, he was held in prisons at Figueras (wound up in the hospital trying to escape), Cerbere, Zaragoza, and Barcelona, eventually ending up in the Concentration Camp at Miranda de Ebro, where he was confined until 1943)
