September 9th magenta double circle. Two tape marks on reverse where ti was glued. John Bamber first advertised July 12, 1858 as the only authorized Contra Costa express agent for daily and weekly newspapers having purchased J.W. Hoag & Co's Contra Costa Express in which he had previously held a partial financial interest. From September 20, 1858 he ran an ad looking for a purchaser of his newspaper and express business with inquires to be directed to J. Bamber's office in San Francisco, W.K. Bacon's office in Oakland or to the "subscriber" J.W. Hoag. On September 9, 1870 Bamber incorporated as "Bamber Express Co." with four other trustees. On January 1, 1874 a change in ownership was announced, including A.D. Whitney, and the firm no longer advertised. On July 6, 1874 it was announced that Whitney & Co. Express had purchased the company. [Frajola]
