Stock Code: P201006561
1854 (FE 21) cover from Toronto to New York, endorsed 'Money 4s' and franked at 6d by 1852-57 3d brown-red 'Beaver' vertical pair on wove paper with good to enormous margins (trace of adjoining stamp at left), tied by individual target cancels, with despatch cds at lower left and straight line 'MONEY-LETTER', 'PAID', and curved 'CANADA' handstamps (all in red) alongside. Horizontal filing fold as often (well away from stamps) and left flap removed, still a splendid and very rare showpiece item, being one of just TEN such money letter frankings to the USA recorded in the Wayne Smith census.
