Bamfords Four Day Fine Art and Antique Sale - Day 3 (Part 2) - Thursday 19th January 2017
GB 1840 used penny black, MF, on an entire letter to Ashby de la Zouch. A black Maltese cross ties
this fine four margin stamp to the cover. A clear complete cds for Atherstone, Warwickshire, shows Feb 28th 1841. This was a Sunday. The writer of the letter has dated it March 1st presumably because business letters at that time were not normally dated on a Sunday. A previous owner has noted on the front in pencil 'Pl 11'
