NEW BRUNSWICK, 1851, 3p Dull Red (1; SG 2).
Horizontal pair, ample to large margins, deeply blued paper, faint crease between stamps, tied by "New-York Sep. 4"
circular datestamp and also by "United States" in oval on 1856 cover from the United States to Sussex, New Brunswick,
sent from The American Institute of the City of New York, straightline "Held for Postage" handstamp of New York City crossed out in pen, "10" rate, backstamped "New-York Sep. 5", St. Johns transit and Sussex receiving datestamp
A VERY FINE AND UNIQUE COVER, SHOWING USE OF NEW BRUNSWICK STAMPS ON MAIL FROM THE UNITED STATES.
The sender apparently misunderstood postal regulations and presumed that New Brunswick stamps would be accepted by the U.S. post office.
