ITEM NOTES: This is from a large collection which we will be listing more of over the next few months.

CONDITION: 4+ (Very Good): The postal cover has been slit at edges to retrieve the letter inside; there is some wear and tearing to edges; some yellowing of the paper; very minor fading of ink, and some heavy foxing on the back form the envelope glue. Still a nice example.

GUARANTEE: As with all my artifacts, this piece is guaranteed to be original, as described.
