THE SECOND FINEST OF THE NOVA SCOTIA ONE-SHILLING COLD VIOLET COVERS TO INDIA FROM THE INGLES CORRESPONDENCE.
There are four or five covers from the Ingles correspondence with Nova Scotia 1sh Cold Violet stamps making up the rate to India. The finest of these is the ex Dale-Lichtenstein mourning cover, which has a full-margined pair and is sound in all respects. The cover offered here has a superb pair with large margins, and the minor opening faults in the envelope do not affect its appearance at all. The other Ingles covers have stamps that are cut into.
Ex Gibson, Foxbridge. Backstamped Vincent Graves Greene. With 1995 B.P.A. certificate
