EXTREMELY FINE APPEARANCE. A STRIKING CORNER MARGIN EXAMPLE OF THE RARE NEW YORK POSTMASTER'S PROVISIONAL ON BLUE WOVE.
The last printing of the New York provisional was furnished on January 7, 1847, when 100 sheets were delivered (see Rawdon, Wright & Hatch record book entry on page 71 of this catalogue). Philip T. Wall believes that most if not all of the stamps on Gray paper (Scott 9X3) and Blue paper (Scott 9X2) come from this last printing, as all of the known covers are postmarked after that date.
Ex Lapham. With 2012 P.F. certificate
