Sale Number 925, Lot Number 1292, BeesleyBlizzard Mail, New York N.Y., 5c Black (163L1), Blizzard Mail, New York N.Y., 5c Black (163L1)Blizzard Mail, New York N.Y., 5c Black (163L1). Unused (no gum), huge margins all around

EXTREMELY FINE. A RARE EXAMPLE OF THE 5-CENT STAMP ISSUED BY BLIZZARD MAIL, WHICH CARRIED MAILS FROM NEW JERSEY TO THE NEW YORK POST OFFICE DURING THE BLIZZARD OF 1888.

This is the only example of this rarity we have offered. Ex Schwartz (Siegel Sale 825, lot 1588, for $7,500 hammer). Scott value inexplicably ignores this past realization.
