A VERY FINE STRIP OF THE ONE-CENT 1880 SOFT PAPER RE-ISSUE ON A STAMP DEALER'S SPECTACULAR MULREADY-BASED ADVERTISING COVER. THIS IS THE LARGEST RECORDED MULTIPLE OF SCOTT 133 ON COVER.
The 1869 PRA Census records eleven covers with Scott 133 or 133a. This is the largest intact multiple of any of the 1c Re-Issues (123, 133 or 133a) used on cover. It is also one of four Holton Mulready covers known to us with 1869 Re-Issue stamps. A similar Holton Mulready cover with three 1c 1875 Hard Paper Re-Issue stamps (pair and single) sold in our 2005 Rarities sale (Sale 895,lot 225) for $8,000 hammer.
