An auction will commence on October 27-29 organised by Robert A Siegel ‘ The William H. Gross Collection: United States 1847First Issue’. An extraordinary offering will be filled in this sale of proof material, unused singles, magnificent used examples with an emphasis on unusual shades, distinctive cancellation and a wealth of postal history usage. One of the most interesting lost that will appear during this is Rush cover.

The lot described by Philip H. Ward, Jr. as ‘the most important cover known to American philately’. It was called the Rush cover because of its addresses to Richard Rush, who was the U.S. minister of France and was in Paris when the letter was mailed in 1848. The cover was mailed from Philadelphia. It’s the only known cover with a strip of four, five and six of the Scott No. 2 stamp addressed to a foreign country. This lot is excepted to fetch 400,000-500,0000 dollars.
