VERY FINE. A VERY ATTRACTIVE AND RARE EXAMPLE OF THE NEW YORK POSTMASTER’S PROVISIONAL STAMP USED ON INBOUND MAIL FROM BOSTON.

New York Postmaster Robert H. Morris arranged to distribute stamps to some cities outside of New York and instructed the postmasters to treat the letters as unpaid at origin, but New York would accept them as prepaid on arrival. This cover originated in Boston, and the stamp has the unusual initials configuration with the letters “ACM” almost completely separated (without periods), except the “C” and “M” are faintly attached.

Ex Lapham and Frelinghuysen. With 2012 P.F. certificate
