Large margins, diagonal crease at lower right, affixed to brown cover and "tied" by fake "Paid" arc cancel, the red "New-York 2 cts." circular datestamp is genuine, as is the stamp itself, which is rare. Elliott Perry and George Sloane were convinced that this cover and three others like it, with the "Paid" in arc tying the stamp, were made by a dealer who cut up a block and made up covers with singles. Although this cover is pictured in the Patton book, and our firm has sold these covers in the past, at the time we prepared the Golden sale we reached the opinion that the four recorded "Paid" covers are fakes. By removing the fake covers from the record, the date of issue is free to be moved to circa 1852 at the end of the Mead-Coles-Barry ownership of the City Despatch Post, a more logical time.
