EXTREMELY FINE. A BEAUTIFUL EXAMPLE OF THE 5-CENT NEW YORK POSTMASTER'S PROVISIONAL ON BLUE WOVE PAPER.
In The New York Postmaster's Provisional, Stanley Piller cites Luff's statement that the last printing of the New York provisional took place on January 7, 1847, when 100 sheets were delivered. Piller also conveys Philip Wall's belief that most if not all of the stamps on Gray (Scott 9X3) and Blue (Scott 9X2) papers come from this last printing, as all the known covers are used after that date.
