FINE AND RARE. ONE OF ONLY NINE PRIEST'S DESPATCH BLACK-ON-PINK USAGES.

Another cover to Henry Seybert is listed among the nine 121L4 covers in the Roth census. Although the paper of this stamp is classified as Rose, our observation is that it is unlike the example offered in the previous lot and might be a white paper that has been toned by gum.

Ex Golden. With 1999 P.F. certificate stating that the stamp has been removed and replaced on this front of origin
