|Suit:||Queen of Spades|
|Name:||Perotís First Issue III|
|Description:||The first provisional stamps were created by William B. Perot, the postmaster of Hamilton. He modified a Hamilton postmarking hand-stamp, removing the month and day plugs. The stamp now was a circular stamp with Hamilton Bermuda around the circle and the date in the center. To make it appear more official, Perot penned One penny above the year and his signature 'W.B. Perot', below it. It was hand stamped onto adhesive paper and cut for prepaid postage, eliminating any losses from dishonest patrons. This stamp was cut in an out-of-round shape. Only 11 examples of the Perot provisional exist.|
|Color:||Black ink on Gray paper|
