Pretty example of the Madison, Indiana star cancel from the mids 1860s on a 24-cent 1861 issue, scott 78, used to Dundalk, Ireland.  "July 65" docketing.  Town name clear but state didn't ink; clear red New York British Packet marking with "paid 19" at bottom; Dundalk receiver on back with some pencil annotations and hinge marks in corners; apparently out of one of the 1941 Knapp sales.  New PSAG cert erroneously states the cover is used to "Iceland".  I wish it was....but it's Ireland, not Iceland.  Scott on cover$400; nice fancy use.
