1858 (26 Feb.) entire letter from Louisa Mary Harvey to her brother Capt. Jack Harvey "25th. Regt., Gibraltar or elsewhere", bearing 1855 wing-margin 6d. lilac neatly cancelled "324" and showing, on reverse, a superb strike of the circular-undated "sark" handstamp alongside Guernsey (4.3) and London (6.3) datestamps. A great rarity with only a handful examples recorded, this believed to be the earliest date known. Photo
