BRAZIL, 1843, 60r Black, Early Impression (2).
Huge margins all around, tied by brown "S. Joao. Del Rei" straightline handstamp on folded letter datelined Mar. 30, 1844 to Rio de Janeiro, cover with minor faults such as address with slight ink erosion and missing a small part of backflap, neither affecting stamp, faint overall aging
VERY FINE. A RARE EXAMPLE OF THE 60-REIS EARLY IMPRESSION "BULLS-EYE" ON COVER CANCELLED BY A PRE-ADHESIVE PERIOD STRAIGHTLINE TOWN MARKING ON THE ADDRESS SIDE OF THE COVER.
The Bull's Eye stamps were often affixed to the backs of covers. Examples tied on the face of the cover are much more desirable and scarce.
