Description

Great Britain 1840 2d Mulready Lettersheet, ME3,5.

A very fine used example uprated to the 6d per 3 ounce rate with two additional four margin 2d blues from plate 1, both cancelled and tied by crisp red Maltese Crosses.

Sent from Bradford to Wetherby with a Bradford/Yorks dispatch circular date stamp on reverse for 'JU.4.1840'.

Archive folding and some light soiling but much better condition than normally seen for such covers.

A very rare uprated Mulready, believed to be one of only two such 6d frankings uprated with 2d blues. A major rarity of early British postal history.

Provenance: Ex. Grand Prix Gold Medal Winning Collection "Mayflower".

Accompanied with a 1954 Philatelic Foundation of New York (PF) certificate of authenticity.

The current Stanley Gibbons Great Britain Queen Victoria Specialised catalogue price for a 2d Mulready lettersheet used with just one 1840 2d blue is £42,000.
