1877, 5¢ RLS (perf 12.11×12.11, very early printing) tied by target cancel and registered S/L on cover from Consecon Ont (Prince Edward county) paying 5¢ registered letter rate to Napanee (Trenton transit). The regulations stipulated that ‘’registered letter stamp’’ could not be used to pay postage (Post Office Dept Order – January 1876, warning to Postmasters “… are not to be used under any circumstances for prepaying any ordinary postage rate). This is a small Post Office likely unfamiliar with regulations. Very few such examples exist and a great showpiece. HD0000011
