Used with 5c Yellow Brown (205) and tied by well-struck "New York Reg." oval handstamp on large part of blue refolded cover front only to Berlin, Germany, neat "New York Reg'y. Div. 11-16 1887" oval datestamp, New York registry label at left, folded for display

FRESH AND FINE. A SCARCE USE OF THE 90-CENT 1879 AMERICAN BANK NOTE COMPANY ISSUE. HIGHLY SUITABLE FOR DISPLAY.

Covers bearing the 90c stamps are scarce, particularly after the U.P.U. came into effect. We have only offered two full covers since keeping computerized records. Full covers tend to be very large and unwieldy. This front is very desirable, as it will actually fit on an exhibition or album page.

Scott Retail as on cover $5,000.00
