I recently purchased a cover collection and what a collection!Sitting on top was a cover with a #19, #22 and #24.

Positions:
19: 94L4, Type Ia
22: 23L4, Type III
24: 51L5, Type V

The attending note indicates the addressee was a close personal friend of Abraham Lincoln.

The seller of the collection was kind enough to plate these and I know that if he says its a #19, or a Plate 5, it is. This is by far the largest collection I have purchased and without a doubt, the best. The focus being the Once Cent Franklin's of 1851 & 1857. The collection has numerous multiples of 2, 3 & 4 and many combinations with the 26 & 35. Its going to take me some time to scan them all but I wanted to share this cover.

Art



Edited: I had the 19 & 22 positions reversed

Wow Art! I am anxiously awaiting some scans. I recently found love of classic stamps on cover, especially to foreign destinations with the higher denomination stamps- So this will be right up my alley!

Art - what a great purchase! In addition to stamp images, I would be interested in seeing interesting whole covers.
