Stock Code: G1454896
1840 1d Black Pl.1a. Very fine used block of six lettered MH-NJ with good to large margins, used on a large solicitors entire from Chester to Manchester, neatly tied by crisp red MC's with a red Chester cds on reverse for MY.9.1840, the cover endorsed at upper left "Under 3oz". A few minor faults as to be expected, nevertheless a spectacular and important showpiece, only two such covers now survive in private hands bearing large multiples from the first four days of use. This cover from the fourth official day of use. Ex. Victoria, Cawardine, Vullo. 2001 BPA Cert. Ex. "Mayflower".
