EXTREMELY FINE. THIS IS THE FINEST OF ONLY FOUR RECORDED USED EXAMPLES OF THE STAMFORD SOLDIERS' FAIR STAMP.
There is a total of twelve recorded Stamford Soldiers' Fair stamps, issued during the fair on July 27-29, 1864. Seven form a reconstructed unused block. There is an additional unused copy and four used copies. The stamp offered here is by far the finest of the used examples.
