Slight stain and crossed by file fold but of great scarcity. Sold together with a reprint (1870) made from the original die.
Note: The Postmaster General in Sydney, James Raymond, authorised this embossed 'stamp' in 1838, which reads 'General Post Office / Sydney / New South Wales'. Customers could bring their own paper to receive the impressed franking, initially at 2 d. each, the rate was reduced to 1 d. in 1841. These rare covers pre-date all other forms of Postal Stationery issued.
