Third Avenue Post Office, New York N.Y., 2c Black on Green Glazed (139L1).
Cut to oval shape as always, excellent bold impression, margins mostly clear of frameline, used on piece with 3c Dull Red (11), two full margins, other sides slightly in, both stamps tied by "New-York Apr. 15" circular datestamp, piece harshly described by the P.F. as slightly soiled
VERY FINE. ONE OF THE RARE EXAMPLES OF A THIRD AVENUE POST STAMP CANCELLED BY THE NEW YORK DATESTAMP.
These stamps were normally left uncancelled. It is only when the New York datestamp coincidentally struck the local stamp that a tying cancel occurred, as in this case.
Ex Caspary and Hall. With 2001 P.F. certificate
