EXTREMELY FINE. A STUNNING ORIGINAL-GUM EXAMPLE OF THE STAMFORD SOLDIERS' FAIR STAMP.
The Stamford Soldiers' Fair stamps were issued during the fair on July 27-29, 1864. This stamp comes from the famous Ackerman-Perry-Kantor block purchased at the Stamford Fair by Alvee Augustus Adee and we believe it to be the finest example extant. Only twelve Stamford Soldiers' Fair stamps are recorded in total.
With 2015 P.F. certificate (XF 90)
