Pretty New York to Montreal, Canada use of the 10 cent 1847 issue, Scott 2.  Red CDS; stamp with sharp impression and huge top and right margins; narrow left margin; cut in at bottom; a few light vertical file folds, one of which impacts stamp.  4 1/2p Canada rate; business letter content.  Some light adhesive may have been used in a prior mounting or to keep letter closed; it's a bit tacky.  The online 1847 census shows 29 covers from New York to Montreal with a single #2.  Lovely cover.  With new PSAG certificate.
