BLOOD & Co

WARNING: if not specifically stated that the stamps are genuine, the stamps could be forgeries or reprints!


(Genuine, images obtained from a Siegel auction)

Some very rare stamps with inscription 'PHILA. DESPATCH POST PAID' were issued in 1843. The stamps had a value of 3 c, two colours exist: 3 c black and 3 c red on blue.

 

1845-1846 Man jumping over the city

Genuine
(Reduced sizes, genuine stamps)


D.O.Blood & Co's City Despatch Paid, note the small differences between all the above stamps.

This stamp exists without any inscription (except 'CITY DIPATCH POST PAID'), with inscription 'D.O. BLOOD & COs' and 'D.O. BLOOD & CO's CITY DESPATCH'. I'm not sure if all the above stamps are genuine, dangerous forgeries exist.
