SKU Lot187

A fine cover franked with the 1c yellow and 3c orange Queen Victoria stamp from the 1870-1897 Small Queen and 1897 Diamond Jubilee Issues. Sent from Summerside PEI to Charlottetown on October 28, 1897. It was not deliverable, and so it was re-addressed to Amherst NS and sent back from Charlottetown on November 1, 1897, as indicated by the squared circle cancel on the front. It arrived back in Amherst on November 2, as indicated by the Amherst receiving backstamp. Overall toning and a few edge tears, but a fine example of a re-directed Jubilee issue cover. Est. $50.
