Desirable US #1 On Cover Can Be Yours on Scarce Folded Letter or Address Sheet
Folded Letters are a Scarce Treasure for Your US Collection
Owning America’s first postage stamp on a folded letter makes you a witness to its history. The beautiful and intricate handwriting on each letter makes it a fun challenge to read – figuring out the name of its sender and city of origin, as well as its destination and recipient. And you’re guaranteed correspondence inside which will give you a glimpse of American life in the mid-1800s. What more could we collectors ask for?
Folded address sheets have the same outer sheet as a folded letter – complete with US #1, address, and postal markings, but without the written correspondence. These are more of a mystery, still a scarce piece of postal history for your collection. And it’s fun to imagine what might have been inside.
Slight imperfections on the stamp franking each letter or sheet reflect its long history and great age, but don’t detract from its beauty, collectability, and importance to America and our hobby. They do make it possible for you to get all this history at a price of $200 less than our price for a standard US #1 on the same piece. It’s a great value and a real coup for your collection at this attractive price. Make it the centerpiece of your stamp collection today for just $495 for complete folded letter or $450 for folded address sheet.
