SZIGETVAR HALBIERUNG – UNIKALER BRIEF
2Kr Kupferdruck – Dreierstreifen davon letze Marke diagonal halbiert (untere rechte Hàlfte) als 5Kr Porto auf einfachschweren Faltbrief entwertet mit Einkreis SZIGETVAR 30.1.73 nach Pecs daneben handschriftlicher Vermerk in ‘old fashion’ ungarisch ‘aushilfsweise’ – offensichtlich als Vermerk für das Fehlen von 5Kr Marken zum Aufgabezeitpunkt
einzig bekannte Halbierung von Szigetvar – ausführliches Attest Ferchenbauer,
ausserordentliche Rarität mit Ausstellungscharakter
Unique “Szigetvar” Bisect Cover
1871 Engraved 2 Krajczar Orange, horizontal pair plus se-tenant third stamp BISECTED diagonally to make up the 5Kr inland single weight letter rate, all neatly struck by two clear SZIGETVAR / 30.1.73 cds to folded entire to Pecs, with arrival bs (31.1). Next to the bisect is written “szükségböl” (“emergency,” i.e. a lack of the proper stamps to make up the 5Kr rate) which would have been the only justification for the bisect usage.
An outstanding usage of great rarity, in fact the only such usage known from this town, and per 1993 Ferchenbauer certificate, the only such legitimate bisect of this issue known to him. An exhibition showpiece of the highest rarity and importance.
Expertise: Ferenc Orban (1991) states “I have never before seen bisectings from Szigetvar office however, I am convinced that the office was in an emergency situation, which is stated with the old fashion Hungarian word “szükségböl.” Bisecting was forbidden, but there was not taken due at the arrival.” Also certificate Ferchenbauer (1993).
