EXTREMELY FINE. ONE OF THE FINEST OF THE FEW KNOWN COVERS BEARING A BLOCK OF THE 2-CENT "RED JACK" ISSUE.
We have offered a cover with a block of eight and a pair (double 10c rate) but it is heavily pen-cancelled and faulty. In our 2017 Rarities sale we offered a cover with a block and a pair affixed to the back of a small cover and that one is of high quality. Apart from those we have not offered any other blocks on cover since keeping computerized records.
