TASMANIA 1857 SG20 Cover

Stock Code: P16704243

1857 (JY 25) entire letter from Hobart to 'Campell Town', franked at 4d inland rate by 1856-57 2d dull emerald-green on thin white paper (no wmk), two examples of lovely fresh colour with mostly good margins, tied by very fine '62' numeral, with red 'PRE-PAID' despatch cds below. Light filing fold at foot, the stamps lifted for inspection (by Purves) and replaced, and the left stamp with unobtrusive vertical crease, nevertheless a choice and very rare cover, one of only five recorded with this stamp - unique with this franking and the earliest known usage. BPA cert (2014), not mentioning the crease.
