FINE. THE BOYCE'S CITY EXPRESS POST STAMP IS EXTREMELY RARE, WITH PERHAPS EIGHT TO TEN KNOWN ON COVERS AND ANOTHER FOUR OR FIVE OFF COVER.

The stamp on this cover is illustrated in Pat Paragraphs (reprint, p. 367). Ex Golden (Siegel Sale 817, lot 574, realized $4,000 hammer). With 1999 P.F. certificate
