I've started to notice Mulready wrappers for sale. Quite attractive items and used examples have very interesting markings. I see there are 1d. and 2d. versions. Decent used examples typically sell in the $100 range.

"I just won this great addition to my collection. It's an unused 1840 Great Britain 1 cent Mulready envelope. It appears to be in excellent condition and I'm happy with the 20% of cat winning bid. These envelopes were issued on May 1st 1840, 6 days before the penny Black was put into service. Like the penny Black the Mulready was an experiment to see which would be more popular. The Mulready was not that well received (for several reasons) and the penny Black/stamps won the day and the future."

Marvelous! I was astounded to watch the bidding on this one. 56 bids, sold for $2456.22!
Wow!

re: Mulready wrappers

I'd love to see and read the letter it once contained, to see if that red line was purposeful.

re: Mulready wrappers

Great item Paul!

I really like the design. Much more fun than the Mulready one.

I guess the cover originally had a penny stamp cancelled by the incomplete Warrington postmark at the top.

I wonder if the red mark is a charge mark?
