VERY FINE APPEARANCE. THE ONLY RECORDED COVER WITH THE CHEEVER & TOWLE STAMP TIED BY A HANDSTAMP.

Cheever & Towle's usual method of cancelling its stamps (if at all) was to apply a small "X" in manuscript, sometimes with an extra dash or two. This is the only cover in our records, the Sloane or Costales files that has the stamp cancelled and tied by the red oval marking.

Ex Boker and Golden (Siegel Sale 817, lot 902, realized $4,500 hammer)
