VERY FINE STAMP AND A BEAUTIFUL STRIKE OF THIS BINGHAMTON NEW YORK FANCY CANCEL. AN OUTSTANDING 1847 ISSUE COVER.
Ex Wolcott, Sweet, Rust (1987 Rarities of the World sale), Boker and Gross. Exhibited at The Collectors Club of New York 1940 Centenary exhibition (by Sweet). Signed Ashbrook. With 2019 P.F. certificate.
EXTREMELY FINE. A SUPERB 5-CENT 1847 RAILROAD COVER. EASILY ONE OF THE FINEST KNOWN.
On the back of this cover, Philip H. Ward wrote "Possibly the finest 1847 5¢ Railroad cover." We concur with Ward's assessment. The USPCS census lists only two 1847 covers with this route agent's datestamp and this is quite obviously the finer of the two.
Ex Ackerman, Rust, Boker and Gross. Signed Ashbrook. With 2019 P.F. certificate.
FRESH AND VERY FINE DOUBLE-WEIGHT USE OF A PAIR OF THE 5-CENT 1847 ISSUE. THE TOP STAMP IS A GEM.
The top stamp in this pair is an Extremely Fine Gem that would certainly grade XF-Superb 95 Jumbo as an off-cover single. We are not encouraging the vandals, but simply advising bidders to consider the potential SMQ value of $2,500.00 for the top stamp.
Ex Eubanks. With 2002 and 2017 P.F. certificates
EXTREMELY FINE STAMP TIED ON A FRESH SMALL COVER BY THE VIVID ORANGE GRID OF MOBILE, ALABAMA. BEAUTIFUL IN EVERY RESPECT.

With 2016 P.F. certificate
