Great Britain 1840 1d Black Plate 10, SG2 cover.
An exceptionally fine used four margin example lettered LC tied to a clean entire by a crisp red Maltese Cross. Addressed to Sheffield and backstamped with a Lombard Street, London Maltese Cross date stamp for JA.04.1841. Examples of this plate cancelled in red used on cover are rare.
A superior quality cover of exhibition quality and one of the most beautiful penny black covers I have ever had the privilege to handle.
Provenance: Ex Daisy
Accompanied with a Royal Philatelic Society (RPS) Certificate of Authenticity (1966).
