Pomeroy's Letter Express, 5c Orange-Red on Thin Bond (117L7).
Vertical pair, large margins to ample at upper right, cancelled by ms. (not tied), used on undated blue folded cover with part of letter, probably originated in Albany N.Y., addressed to Milwaukee Wis.
VERY FINE. ONE OF TWO RECORDED MULTIPLES OF THE POMEROY RED 117L5 STAMP ON COVER.
The other recorded multiple is a strip of three on a folded letter from Albany to Norwich N.Y., dated August 16, 1844. It is also the Orange-Red shade.
