EXTREMELY FINE EXAMPLE OF THE ATHENS 5-CENT PURPLE PROVISIONAL ISSUE.

Another nearly identical cover from the same correspondence was offered in our sale of the Wishnietsky collection (Sale 1064, lot 35). It also has an untied Athens provisional stamp. Neither of the two stamps can be located in the Levi off-cover listings. It is possible that they originated on the two covers, but we are offering this item as an off-cover stamp. As such it is superb and of a very deep shade (as is the other from this correspondence).

P.F. certificate 204217 declining opinion on origination no longer accompanies
