EXTREMELY FINE APPEARANCE. ONLY THREE OR FOUR THIRD AVENUE POST STAMPS ARE REPORTED ON BUFF PAPER.

This stamp and one other (offered in the Golden sale, lot 1549, realized $2,100 hammer) are the only two confirmed examples of the Buff 139L6 stamp. A cover in the Caspary sale was described with a "Yellow Buff" stamp, but we are unable at this time to determine if it is actually Buff 139L6 or Yellow 139L3. There was also a stamp on cover in the Needham collection that was described as Buff 139L6 in the Harmer, Rooke & Co. sale, Mar. 6-7, 1951.

Ex Caspary, Mason, Lilly and Golden (Siegel Sale 817, lot 1548, realized $2,300 hammer). With 1999 P.F. certificate
