A good to fine used example of this scarce envelope, being the Ocean Penny Postage envelope by Charles Gilpin, State 2, and unrecorded in David Turners book, “Ocean Penny Postage”, used 6 January 1851 Hanley Staffordshire via Newcastle to Bath. With letter, franked fine 4 margin 1d red FH (possibly just touching SE corner). Slight peripheral faults/creasing as usual but fine for these.
