What's the Scott Number for this item?
It says 1879 on the reverse.
I can't find it in my Scott Specialized.

The Scott Specialized combines the embossed envelopes, wrappers (and letter sheets together). Look at U293.

Add: The 1879 date refers to U.S. Patent 217,155 issued on July 1, 1879 to Lebbeus H. Rogers of New York City for his "Combined Envelope and Letter-Sheet". Here is the illustration page of that patent. The descriptive claims fill another page and a half of details. It took a few years for the USPOD to decide to produce these.

Thanks.
Once I got to the listing I saw the image (don't know why I missed it previously).
Now I have to count the perfs to see what variety I've got.

Would the moderator consider correcting the title to indicate that the thread is about the Grant Letter sheet (Scott U293). It would make this thread easier to locate with a search.
