Scott #1 1847 5c Red Brown Franklin Single On Embossed Ladies Cover ~ Red Grid Cancel (130)
1847 5c red brown shade Franklin (Scott #1) single tied by a red circular grid cancel on small format embossed ladies cover sent from Worcester, Massachusetts to Boston. Accompanying red February 22, Worcester, Massachusetts circular date stamp at center and a manuscript "Paid 5" at top left. The cover is in overall fine condition with a tear in the backflap and small part missing in bottom right corner. The stamp showcases a sharp red brown color and ample margins on three sides to just in at right. Still a very nice 1847 Issue embossed cover sent from the uncommon origin of Worcester, MA.
Only 18 surviving 5c 1847 Issue covers sent from Worcester are recorded. The 5-cent stamp on this cover pays the rate for a letter weighing 1/2-ounce or less sent under 300-miles. This is the perfect item for the Massachusetts state postal history enthusiast, student of 1847 Issue stamps or collector of great classic U.S. covers.
