VERY FINE. AN EXCEPTIONAL 13-STAR PATRIOTIC DESIGN ON A WALLPAPER ADVERSITY COVER TO FLORIDA. TRULY REMARKABLE.
This cover, combining a colorful wallpaper adversity use, a stencil patriotic design and a lithograph stamp, may well be unique. Ex Myers and Kilbourne. Illustrated in Abraham Lincoln Illustrated Envelopes and Letter Paper by Milgram (p. 208)
VERY FINE AND EXTREMELY RARE USE OF THE 2-CENT LITHOGRAPH FROM ARKANSAS. ONLY ONE OTHER USE FROM ARKANSAS IS RECORDED IN THE WARREN CENSUS.
The census published by Dr. Daniel Warren in the Congress Book lists only two uses of the 2c Green Lithograph from Arkansas. The other is a strip of five on a cover, ex Hessel and Dukeshire. The example offered here is also one of only three adversity covers with the 2c stamp paying the 10c rate.
Ex J. Frank Drake, Carnegie Museum, Clippert and Dr. Briggs. With photocopy of 1981 and 1998 P.F. certificates. Scott value $13,500.00 for strip used on cover without premium for Arkansas or adversity usage
VERY FINE. A RARE USE OF THE 2-CENT GREEN ON AN ADVERSITY COVER PAYING THE 10-CENT RATE.
A review of the Warren Census shows very few examples of the 2c Lithographed issue paying the 10c rate on an adversity cover. This is the only such use from Georgia.
Warren Census no. GEO-O39. Ex Ballard
VERY FINE APPEARANCE. A COLORFUL AND DESIRABLE WALLPAPER USE.
Ex Wishnietsky. Unlisted in Scott on wallpaper cover from Stone 3. Scott value for single of the more common Stone 2 $1,250.00
EXTREMELY FINE. A BEAUTIFUL MULTICOLORED WALLPAPER COVER WITH AN INTRICATE DESIGN AND WITH STUNNING COLORS. ONE OF THE MOST SPECTACULAR WALLPAPER ADVERSITY COVERS WE HAVE EVER ENCOUNTERED.
EXTREMELY FINE. A BEAUTIFUL AND RARE FOUR-MARGIN FRAMELINE ON AN ADVERSITY COVER.
Four-margin examples of the 10c Frameline on cover are scarce; this use on an adversity cover is truly remarkable.
