EXTREMELY FINE GEM. ONE OF THE FEW POMEROY COVERS KNOWN WITH A MULTIPLE OF ANY SIZE. A SUPERB COVER.

The cover offered here travelled from New York City north to Albany, then west to Buffalo via Utica, Syracuse and Rochester. This "Pomeroy's Express" marking -- cut down from its earlier circular version -- is found only on covers to and from New York City. The "Paid" cancel is found on covers originating from or passing through the Albany office.

The largest multiple of any Pomeroy's Letter Express issue on cover is a strip of four of the Black 117L4 printing. We record one other cover with a pair of this printing.

Illustrated in Independent Mails book. Ex Hall. With 2001 P.F. certificate stating "genuine usage"
