VERY FINE APPEARANCE. AN OUTSTANDING 5-CENT 1856 ISSUE STAMP WITH INTERPANE AND CENTERLINE MARGIN, AND BELGIAN ACCOUNTANCY HANDSTAMP.
The presence of the Belgian accountancy handstamp on this 5c 1856 stamp is very unusual. Only one cover is known to Belgium (offered in Sale 1242, lot 319)--it also bears this marking but not near the stamp.
Ex Mayer (illustrated in the Frajola-Mayer book on p. 27) and Eubanks. With 2006 P.F. certificate
