A very fine used 1d Star from plate 42 lettered MC on white paper tied to a front piece and back flap by a fine ‘396’ Irish diamond numeral of ROSCOMMON. On the back flap there is a fine and clear impression of the very scarce DUBLIN SIGNET cancel ‘DUBLIN/8/AP 3/1857/A’. Also a fine clear ‘ATHLEAGUE’ straightline cancel. a fine green CARLOW CDS ‘AP 3/1857‘ and a fine green ROSCOMMON CDS ‘AP 2/1857/A‘. Altogether a superb piece.
