Large margins to just touching at bottom, grid cancel, Fine, affixed to large multicolored enamel Valentine cover to Topsfield Mass., with enclosure, ms. "due 5"
and red "Boston 10 Cts. 14 Feb." circular datestamp, light horizontal fold, otherwise Very Fine and attractive, offered "as is" -- stamp probably did not originate, but Boston did use a combination of black grid and red datestamp (in 1851, see lot 220), and the "due 5" together with the stamp makes the 10c rate stated in the postmark
