EXTREMELY FINE. ONE OF FOUR COVERS KNOWN WITH THE RARE ST. LOUIS 2-CENT BLUE CARRIER STAMP. THIS COVER IS THE FINEST OF THE THREE TIED EXAMPLES. A REMARKABLE AND OUTSTANDING CARRIER USAGE.
The description for lot 2403 contains a complete record of the 8LB3 examples known to us. Of the three tied usages, one has a stamp that is cut to the shape of the design (No. 5 on the list), and the other has a stamp with faults (No. 2). This small cover with a sound four-margin stamp is arguably the finest of all known examples.
