D. O. Blood & Co., Philadelphia Pa., (2c) Black (15L5).
Full to large margins, tiny margin tear, small black cross cancel, used with black on yellow rectangular Blood's advertising label
("When a paid Stamp is on a Letter sent by Blood's City Despatch, no other charge it made for its delivery") on small blue folded letter dated Nov. 11, 1847, trivial tape stains in bottom corners, according to P.F. the stamp has been lifted and moved to upright orientation -- we doubt it -- in our opinion a Very Fine example of the famous Striding Messenger stamp, ex Meyersburg, with 1997 P.F. certificate
