GB 1840 SG2 Pl.1 Cover
1840 Overseas mail. Superb cover from Limerick to Hamburgh via Dublin and Hull, the 8d rate prepaid by a 1d Black Pl.1b block of eight lettered MJ-PK, divided into two blocks of four each neatly tied by red MC's, endorsed "Per Packet from Hull" at upper left. Backstamped with Limerick and Dublin cds's for AU.27-28.1840, a red "Hull Ship Letter" handstamp and a "Schiffsbrieff Post/Hamburg" cds for SP.6.1840. A couple of insignificant peripheral faults to the cover nevertheless a stunning exhibition piece, the only known such franking with the 1d black and without doubt one of the most famous and iconic pieces of the issue. Ex. Atkinson & Gross. 1990 BPA Cert.
