SKU Lot169

A very fine registered cover franked with the 2c red orange and 3c red orange Queen Victoria stamp from the 1870-1897 Small Queen and Registration Issue. Sent from Centreville Digby on October 25, 1880 to Yarmouth, NS. Nice, clear Digby and Yarmouth backstamps on the reverse. The envelope also contains the original letter on a lined piece of paper with embossed trademark at upper left. The letter is about the payment of money for some clothing that was returned. A simply superb example of the scarce perf used on cover, and containing the original enclosure, which is not often seen with these. The Centreville Digby split ring has been subsequently enhanced, but this detracts little from this wonderful cover. Est. $200.
