1890 90c orange Small Bank Note (229) horizontal strip-of-three, used with 15c indigo (227) and 30c black (228), tied by New York registry ovals, "New York N.Y. Reg'y. Div. 10-4 1890" oval datestamp on large part of blue linen lined cover which has been refolded to Berlin, Germany, receiving backstamp. Ex-Johnson.

 This is the earliest documented use of the 90-cent 1890 issue on a piece of substatial size.

 The $3.15 postage pays 61 times the 5c U.P.U. rate plus the 10c registry fee. This is one of the two pieces counted in the Siegel census of 90c 1890 covers, because despite being reduced, they still have clearly dated postmarks and part of the address. It also has the largest number of 90c stamps of the 18 items in the Siegel census.
