VERY FINE. AN IMPORTANT RARITY OF NEVIS. ONE OF THE FINEST OF THE TINY NUMBER OF COVERS RECORDED WITH THE 1878 ONE-PENNY STAMP.

An essential addition to any important exhibition collection of Nevis. Frederico Borromero lists seven covers in his census, but does not differentiate between the Perf 11-1/2 and the more common Perf 15. At least two of those covers are notably defective.
