VERY FINE. THE EARLIEST AND THE FINEST OF THE FOUR REPORTED USES OF THE 10-CENT 1847 ISSUE FROM LITTLE ROCK, ARKANSAS. ONE OF ONLY FOUR RECORDED 1847 ISSUE COVERS FROM ARKANSAS. A GREAT RARITY OF THE 1847 ISSUE.

The Alexander book records a total of five covers with the 1847 Issue, including one with the 5c and four with the 10c. One of the four 10c covers has apparently not been seen for many years. This is probably the finest example of the 1847 Issue used in Arkansas.

Ex Sampson, Kapiloff and Boker.
