Boyd's City Express, New York N.Y., 2c Black on Bluish Green (20L3), red "Free" cancel, impression ties thru paper, matching "Boyd's City Express Post, Apr. 3 9 O'C" oval datestamp on 1845 folded letter datelined "April 2d 1845" to local street address. This is the largest known sheet-margin example of Boyd's Third Issue on or off cover.

The Third Issue (20L3) is widely regarded as the scarcest of the early Small Eagle & Globe. Covers are rare, and this enormous corner-margin stamp is undoubtedly the finest extant. Ex Golden and "Gordon N. John".
