Priest's Despatch, Philadelphia Pa., (2c) Black on Yellow Wove (121L6).
Two large margins, other sides clear to touching, uncancelled, used with 3c Dull Red (11), large margins to slightly in, tied by "Philadelphia Pa. Apr. 21" circular datestamp on blue 1851 folded letter to New York
VERY FINE AND FRESH. ONLY FOUR OF THE SIX PRIEST'S 121L6 COVERS RECORDED BY ROTH ARE 3-CENT 1851 COMBINATIONS.
The Roth census lists six 121L6 covers, including four in combination with the 3c 1851.
Ex Gibson (who acquired it from Elliott Perry in 1950). A nearly identical cover realized $4,000 hammer in our Golden sale.
