GRAND DUCHY OF TUSCANY * PLATING VARIETIES AND PLATE FLAWS
Country: TUSCANY
Condition: GRAND DUCHY OF TUSCANY * PLATING VARIETIES AND PLATE FLAWS
Description: “Granducato di Toscana: I Francobolli e le Varietà di Cliché” by Emilio Calcagno and Vittorio Morani; in Italian, card cover, 192 pages (6.3/4” x 9.1/2”); about 1,000 colour illustrations; published 2014. Available at: Virginstamps.com PO Box 7007, St. Thomas, VI 00801-0007 USA (issun@candwbvi.net) ****** “Hic sunt leones” [Here are the lions] the Romans used to say to indicate uncharted or troublesome areas on a map. This colourful expression has remained in the western world for centuries and has gradually shifted from cartography to modern colloquialism to describe a situation or condition for which it is wise to pay attention. We doubt ancient Etruria (today’s Tuscany and Umbria) had lions, unless they had escaped from the Coliseum after their lunch bravados so colourfully depicted by the “kolossal” movies of the 1950s. Nonetheless, in the early 1400s the Etrurian lion became Florence’s heraldic symbol. It consists of a seated lion with his right paw supporting a shield featuring the town’s coat of arms, the fleur de lys. It became popularly known as “Marzocco”. Most collectors are familiar with Donatello’s Marzocco because a crowned version is featured on the stamps of the Grand Duchy of Tuscany. Sometime in December 1850, Grand Duke Leopold II was submitted a number of options for the stamp design, including his own portrait or his own coat of arms. Vienna was watching, of course, and after careful evaluation of the proposed designs it was decided to use the Marzocco, even though it was linked to the Tuscan activists seeking independence of the Duchy. This choice has been described by philatelists and postal historians as curious and interesting. The Marzocco stamps had a relatively long life, eight years and nine months, and - from a 21st century perspective - a rather intricate currency mirrored by the face value of the various denominations: 1 Tuscany Lira = 12 Crazie = 20 Soldi = 60 Quattrini. The crown was also a significant component of the watermark’s design and the stamps were printed by letterpress in sheets of 240 stamps (three panes of 80 stamps - five rows of 16 stamps - stacked on one another, leaving a space between each pane of 1.5 millimeters). Unfortunately, budgetary constraints caused the 240 stamps to be squeezed so close that the vertical distance from one stamp to the next is hardly one millimeter; and worse yet, horizontally the distance is a lilliputian 0.8 millimeter, except for the two 1.5 millimeter inter-panneau spaces between panes mentioned earlier. The truly narrow space between stamps was no big concern at the time, but in due course it turned into a nightmare for collectors who demanded even margined examples. In this little, fussy some may say, drawback has flourished for generations the prejudice that has impacted negatively on the popularity of these stamps. Philately shows various positive aspects of the many fine individuals involved in it, but their pursuit for perfection, at times, can show their limitations as well as unrealistic expectations. From the Ministry of Finance point of view, money had been saved; the hastily conceived layout of 240 stamps avoided the paper wastage generated by the first Austria and Lombardy-Venetia issues which resulted in the inclusion of coveted St. Andrew’s Crosses to fill the empty spaces on the plate. Florence was determined to meet the deadline and to save time and money used a master plate that had suitable plugs to insert the value tablets. The technique for creating chalk moulds for stereotyping had been perfected by Turin-based printing specialist Giuseppe Giozza in 1842. [see article on page 199] Stereotype plates for the various denominations of the Grand Duchy stamps were thus created which resulted in a more consistent quality and the possibility of easy replacement of worn-out plates. This however, as we shall see, could complicate the task of plating these stamps. The Florence Mint chief engraver Giuseppe Niederost engraved the die and the printing was executed by the Grand-Duchy Printing Works owned by Francesco Cambiagi & Co. The paper was supplied by the old-reliable Cini paper mills. Among Italian States stamps, those featuring the Tuscan lion are unique when it comes to being printed on paper that is watermarked from top to bottom. This often overlooked detail permitted the vast majority of stamps of the first issue to have a watermark; in the eyes of post office’ top executives this was believed to be a great deterrent for forgers. It seems to have worked because there is no recorded occurrence of Tuscany stamps forged for the purpose of defrauding the post office. It goes without saying that the very few stamps positioned in such a way that they would not have any watermark are quite scarce. Selected denominations of the first series of the Grand Duchy made their debut on Fools’ Day. In fact, seven denominations were issued between Spring and Summer 1851: 1 Soldo ochre; 2 Soldi scarlet; 1 Crazia carmine; 2 Crazie blue; 4 Crazie green; 6 Crazie slate; and a 9 Crazie maroon. In 1852, a 1 Quattrino black (September), and a 60 Crazie scarlet (November) were added. Bluish tinted paper was used for the early printings; but later printings were on greyish tinted paper that had a subtle hue of blue. The lateness of the 60 Crazie caused it to be printed solely on the greyish tinted paper. In 1857, six denominations with the very same design were issued on white paper with diagonal wavy lines as watermark. This is traditionally referred to as the second issue which included the following values: 1 Quattrino, and 1, 2, 4, 6, and 9 Crazie. Incidentally, the watermark was designed in such a way that every single stamp had to have portions of it. The most impressive achievement of this book is to have plated 230 out of 240 stereotypes. One lone, ground-breaking article on the subject had been written in 1960 by the prolific philatelic writer Professor Cesco Giannetto and it triggered greater attention to recurrent flaws. This was duly reflected in the subsequent updates of both the Bolaffi Encyclopaedic Catalogue of Old Italian States and the C.E.I. (Catalogo Enciclopedico Italiano). The plating, however, looked like an herculean endeavour because due to the vulnerable nature of the plates, warts and blemishes were added to the congenital flaws. Additionally the position of a given stamp was not always the same and when new plates were made “musical chairs” took place; the same song and dance applied to the plate composition of the different denominations. With so many capricious variables there was no pun intended in uttering “Here are the lions” - at least until now. Meanwhile a collector-dealer by the name of Lorenzo Veracini had accumulated a huge amount of these lions, irrespective of poor margins and blemishes. His 20 years pursuit became a truly impressive collection that he exhibited at national philatelic events. This stirred great interest and became the launch pad for the co-authors of the monograph under review who had been pursuing similar endevours for quite some time. Mapping these stamps was not an easy task but, Calcagno and Morani received encouragement by the Society for the Study of the Postal History of Tuscany (A.S.Po.T.). To a large extent this was successfully accomplished, and the plating (in the old sense) was achieved for the 2 and 9 Crazie, but - due to the variables mentioned earlier - research on the other denominations is still underway. This book has a lot to offer to both the newcomer and the specialist; it is divided into two main sections: the first is entirely devoted to introducing the stamps of the Grand Duchy of Tuscany and the second delves into the plating and other highly specialised aspects of these stamps. Far from being a simple refresher course, part one outlines the postal history of the region; currencies, coins, and weights; postal rates; hand-stamps and cancellations; the context in which the postage stamps were adopted and the motivations for their introduction and use. Then the stamps, the paper, the watermark, the making of plates; the main characteristics of the stamp design; and the printing aspects. This lavishly produced monograph examines plate flaws and varieties in great detail - a task made easier in recent times thanks to the great technological progress made by digital photography, scanners and digital microscopes. All aspects that can contribute to the plating of the various stamps are examined and the wealth of illustrations makes you look at your Tuscany stamps from an entirely new perspective. Some positional flaws are positively eye-catching such as the “backpack”; the malformed “T” that looks like a cross; the flawed “B” that turns “FRANCOBOLLO” into “FRANCOROLLO”; the little cloud that makes one think that the lion is smoking; and (coincidence?) the uncoloured flaw that looks like a cigar the lion is holding with his right paw; just to mention a few. This book leaves no stones un-turned, and is a labour of love that fills a large void in the study of these interesting stamps. We are confident it will generate a greater interest in these classic issues. It is produced and printed at state-of-the-art level; the illustrations are of the highest quality; and for the many challenges a production like this may pose, the lay-out is brilliantly devised. The language barrier is not an issue here because all the pictures and blow-ups are worth a trillion words. Additionally the Authors use straight-to-the-point, simple language. This book is both highly recommended and a wise, long-lasting investment. Reviewed by Giorgio Migliavacca

1590 FLORENCE TO CALCIONE * Firenze PRINCISVALLE DELLA STUFA
Country: TUSCANY
Condition: 1590 FLORENCE TO CALCIONE * Firenze PRINCISVALLE DELLA STUFA
Description: 26 APRIL 1590: 425 YEAR OLD ENTIRE LETTER from FLORENCE, from PRINCISVALLE DELLA STUFA, signed by ELISABETTA DELLA STUFA. The Della Stufa were a noble family dating back to the 1200s, they were the owners of the famous CALCIONE CASTLE. They were also relatives and loyal allies of the MEDICIS. This letter informs the Captain of the Calcione Castle that Princisvalle is going to Loreto and needs his favourite horse and two "well groomed men" to accompany him; he also makes arrangements for his return to Badia and later to Calcione. The signature of Elisabetta is in conjunction with further instructions; at this time in history it is VERY RARE to encounter a woman's signature complete with her family name on a letter!!! CALCIONE IS STRATEGICALLY LOCATED BETWEEN SIENA AND AREZZO. Princisvalle and his brother Pandolfo invested large amounts of money to restore the nearby Badia; Princisvalle was also instrumental in refurbishing the Calcione Palace and turn it into a most impressive Castle [see images on the Internet]. In 1632 Calcione was elevated to Marquisate. The Della Stufa first-born male lineage came to an end in 1662 and the Marquisate and most assets were passed on to the second-born lineage. The only survivor of the first lineage, Teresa della Stufa (daughter of Domenico) married Giovanni di Antonio di Corsi. *** Overall condition of this important and UNIQUE letter: fine to very fine.

Condition: 1591 FLORENCE TO BORGO SANSEPOLCRO Arezzo * to PRINCISVALLE DELLA STUFA
Description: FLORENCE 29 MAY 1591: 425 YEAR OLD ENTIRE LETTER to PRINCISVALLE DELLA STUFA Special Commissioner at BORGO SANSEPOLCRO (near Arezzo). The letter is from LORENZO BERARDI and refers to the incarceration of a cavalryman in Borgo Sansepolcro. The Della Stufa were a noble family dating back to the 1200s, they were the owners of the famous CALCIONE CASTLE. They were also relatives and loyal allies of the MEDICIS. In 1632 the first-born lineage of the family was given the title of MARQUIS in perpetuity. *** Large portion of the “nizza” used to seal the letter has survived. The use of sealing letters with a NIZZA began in the fifteenth century; a NIZZA is a strip of paper on which it is struck a dry seal - the nizza is glued to the letter by wax or binding substance. The final (triangular) tongue of the nizza went through a slit of the folded letter reaching the address side. The tongue had to be torn to open the letter. If the nizza was not intact when delivered to the addressee it would be evidence that the letter had been violated. ****** Overall condition of this important and UNIQUE letter: fine to very fine.
