VERY FINE. A RARE USE OF CUMMINGS' "LETTER & HEART" STAMP ON YELLOW PAPER.

The Cummings' "Letter & Heart" stamp was printed on three different papers -- Rose, Green and Yellow -- and although Yellow is the most common of the three, it is still quite scarce properly used on cover.

Ex Hall. With 2001 P.F. certificate
