Category — General Issues On-Cover (No. 13, Balance)
EXTREMELY FINE. THIS IS THE LARGEST RECORDED MULTIPLE OF THE 20-CENT GENERAL ISSUE ON COVER. ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT AND SPECTACULAR CONFEDERATE GENERAL ISSUE COVERS IN EXISTENCE.
Ex Knapp (acquired privately by the Halls in April 1928). Unlisted in Scott or Dietz (the latter indicates that a strip of four on cover is the largest multiple).
VERY FINE APPEARANCE. A REMARKABLE COMBINATION OF THE 20-CENT ENGRAVED AND 5-CENT DE LA RUE ISSUES.
We know of no other cover bearing this combination of 20c and 5c De La Rue multiples
