VERY FINE APPEARANCE. AN EXTREMELY RARE VERTICAL STRIP OF FOUR OF THE HALE & COMPANY 5-CENT BLUE WITH STREET ADDRESS OMITTED, USED ON COVER. THIS IS THE LARGEST RECORDED MULTIPLE OF THIS STAMP ON COVER, AND ONLY ONE OTHER STRIP OF FOUR -- FROM THE PLATE WITH THE ADDRESS, SCOTT 75L1 -- IS RECORDED ON COVER.

VERY FINE. AN OUTSTANDING TRIPLE-RATE FRANKING PAID BY A CHOICE STRIP OF THE "13 COURT ST." ISSUE WITH THE "WAIL" PLATE VARIETY.
The Hale & Co. stamps were often cut into singles for convenience, making strips of three or larger extremely unusual. This strip contains Position 17, which shows the broken letter in "Wall" that produced the "Wail" variety.
