1574 ogc UO32 image#UO32, 2c Vermilion War Dept. on white, die WD2, size 6, knife 17, wmk. 2, an immaculate entire of this extremely rare Reay War Department envelope, brilliant vermilion color on high quality bright white paper, crisp unsoiled edges, extremely fine; this value in either color on white paper is very scarce as a cut square, though it is frequently found in major collections of cut squares, apparently most existing examples of the 2c Vermilion on white envelope, which only comes in this one UPSS number, have been cut down to cut squares because the entire envelope is a major postal stationery rarity that has not been on the market in many years; this is believed to be one of only two examples that are known and the first example that we have ever offered; unpriced as an entire in Scott; signed R.H.
