5c Grayish Brown (1a).
Huge margins all around including sheet margin at bottom,
bright shade, crisp impression, tied by red grid cancel, matching "New London Ct. Sep. 17" datestamp and "5" handstamp on blue folded cover to Troy N.Y., stamp lifted (probably to determine condition--it is sound) and hinged in place
EXTREMELY FINE. A BEAUTIFUL BOTTOM SHEET-MARGIN EXAMPLE OF THE 5-CENT 1847 ISSUE IN THE GRAYISH BROWN SHADE.
Ex Boker. With 1982 P.F. certificate.
