VERY FINE EAST-TO-WEST TRANS-MISSISSIPPI EXPRESS COVER. WESTBOUND COVERS ARE MUCH SCARCER THAN EASTBOUND COVERS.
The Special Routes book states fewer than 50 East-to-West Trans-Mississippi express covers are known -- making them about three-times scarcer than West-to-East covers.
From our 1985 Rarities sale. With 1982 P.F. certificate.
