1859 (AP 1) outer wrapper from St Johns to Baltimore, 'Tucker' correspondence, endorsed 'pr Mail via Halifax', franked by 1857-64 4d scarlet-vermilion, good to very large margins except a little close at foot, tied by light barred oval, with red despatch cds (overstruck by '5/BOSTON/BR.PKT.' entry cds dated 'AP 10') alongside.
Vertical filing folds (clear of stamp and postmarks), but very fine for this usage, the stamp a particularly attractive example with lovely colour.
Ex Bill Gross, Hubbard and Carey Fox with Royal Philatelic Society (1968) and V.G. Greene (2001) Certificates of Authenticity.
