Description

1842 (?) Small Entire Letter sent to Chesterfield ordering “3 Gallons Brandy” with a fine strike (for this) of the INTAGLIO “SOUTH ST. / (CROWN) / SHEFFIELD” Mailbag Seal in black just across the join on the reverse, charged “2” in black manuscript on the front.  Thought to be only example of usage of the Bag Seal as a backstamp to have been recorded from this Town sub-office to date.  An Exhibition Piece.
