Cuba 1903 - EDIFIL 81ip - 2c carmine on amber, 160x89mm, Knife 81, unwatermarked stamped envelope.
The 1903 2c carmine on amber Christopher Columbus stamped envelope used from Puerto Principe to New York, USA. Privately printed corner card of "LA FAMILIA" - SEMANARIO DEL HOGAR - Plaza de Charles A. Dana núm. 2 - CAMAGÜEY. (Semanario = weekly publication). Indicium cancelled with PUERTO PRINCIPE - CUBA - FEB 13, 1903 duplex cds. Backstamped on arrival at New York with NEW YORK, N.Y. - FEB. 20, 1903 cds. Cleanly opened at top with no loss of paper whatsoever and very clean overall. There is a very small sealed tear at the right margin, (at "Street" level!) about 3/16" in length, that can be seen on the larger picture provided. The 2012 EDIFIL catalogue prices an envelope of this issue with a privately printed corner card at € 95,- (US $130.00) - This particular one is a scarcer, historically significant printed corner card type, of which we have seen only this example.
