According to the USPCS census, there are two covers with the 9X2 (Blue paper) used after the July 1, 1847, release date of the 1847 Issue. In addition to the two 9X2 covers, there are several others with 9X1/9X1a stamps dated after the first federal stamps were issued, but some of those might be misdated in docketing notes or have year dates that have been misread. This and the other 9X2 cover have stamps cancelled by the red square grid used by the New York City post office.
