VERY FINE. THE ONLY RECORDED COMBINATION OF THE 5-CENT 1847 ISSUE WITH THE EAGLE CITY POST ISSUE "SAWTOOTH" ADHESIVE. A MAGNIFICENT POSTAL HISTORY RARITY.
There are only two recorded 1847 Issue covers with Eagle City Post adhesives (Meyersburg census, Chronicle No. 156, Nov. 1992, and confirmed in Alexander 1847 Census). The earlier is this March 3, 1849, cover with the "Sawtooth" adhesive (Scott 61L2). The second is a July 25, 1850, cover to Providence R.I. with the small Red adhesive (Scott 61L3). None were offered in either Knapp, Gibson, Caspary, Rohloff or other major sales we reviewed.
Ex Brown and Klein. The Scott Catalogue does not list No. 61L2 used in combination with any other issue.
