Cut to circular shape clear of frame, uncancelled as usual, affixed in its customary place on backflap of cover to Leicester Mass., part of "Milford Ms. May 11" circular datestamp shows space where 3c 1851 stamp was affixed and removed -- its absence is somewhat irrelevant, considering that the Hopedale stamp is on the back

VERY FINE. PROBABLY FEWER THAN FOUR OR FIVE COVERS EXIST WITH THE HOPEDALE PENNY POST CIRCULAR STAMP ON YELLOW. A MAJOR LOCAL-POST RARITY.
