#1, 136L4, 5c Red brown and 2c Red Swarts' City Dispatch Post, on 1850 folded cover to Boston, 5c Red brown with three large margins, just into the frame line at bottom (file fold barely affecting the right margin), tied by ms. crossed lines, 2c Swarts' with four large margins, neat central ms. cancel, right file fold through the stamp, red "U.S. Express Mail/N.Y./N. York/May 20" c.d.s. below, very fine appearance; an extremely rare usage, every aspect of which was to expedite speedy service by use of the private carrier service in New York and the railway U.S. Express service between New York and Boston, docketing specifying that $100.00 was enclosed gives the reason for this extraordinary service; this local is one of the very few local issues listed by Scott as known used with the 5c 1847 Issue but unpriced; signed by William O. Bilden sometime in the 1960's as guaranteed from an original find that he made.
