Large margins showing parts of adjoining stamps, outer framelines just touched in places, fine impression, tied by red "Browne & Co. City Post. Paid" circular handstamp on lady's small cover to local street address, with polite letter on decorative stationery (no date)

EXTREMELY FINE. A CHARMING EXAMPLE OF THE BROWNE & CO. 2-CENT STAMP ON COVER. VERY SCARCE AND MOST DESIRABLE WITH THE STAMP TIED BY THE COMPANY'S RED HANDSTAMP.

The 1c stamp, 29L1, was designed with the "Brown & Co." spelling error. The correct spelling, Browne (with an "e"), appears on the 2c stamp and the markings used by the post.
