VERY FINE. FEWER THAN SIX BROWNE'S EASTON DESPATCH STAMPS ARE RECORDED IN USED CONDITION, AND THIS IS THE ONLY EXAMPLE RECORDED WITH A HANDSTAMP CANCEL.

The engraved stamp with a portrait of Washington, 30L3, was the subject of a study by Larry Lyons (The Penny Post, April 2006). In his article he reconstructs the original plate layout and documents at least 37 examples, only four of which are cancelled. This is the only example recorded with a handstamp cancel.

Ex Caspary. With 1959 and 2001 P.F. certificates. Scott Retail for used ($1,000.00) is irrelevant as it is based on sales of pen-cancelled copies
