FINE APPEARANCE. AN EXCEEDINGLY RARE USE OF THE 12-CENT 1851 ISSUE ON AN ILLUSTRATED TELEGRAPH COVER TO LONDON, WITH THE ORIGINAL TELEGRAPHIC MESSAGE.
Illustrated telegraph covers are particularly rare and desirable when sent through the mails, and we have offered a number bearing the 3c 1851 Issue. However, this is the only example of a 12c 1851 franking or use to an overseas destination we have encountered.
