THIS ABSOLUTELY MARVELOUS COVER (ENVELOPE) HAS THE UNITED STATES FIRST STAMP PLACED ON IT. IT IS #1, BENJAMIN FRANKLIN WITH POST OFFICE FRANKING AND DATED OCTOBER 16, 1850. THIS IS A RARE FIND!! SCOTT CATALOGUE VALUE $650.
Not listed in Alexander
Stamp not tied and appears to be artfully cut to avoid covering name and paid notations. Two paid notations (red and black) may indicate prepayment in cash, not stamps. NY grid cancel is heavy and should have touched edge of cover on left.
