132 158 imageFLOWERS AND SHAMROCKS: Three-Leaf Shamrock, type VII; Rohloff F-14 (RRR) bit worn, tying 1873, 3¢ green, on neat envelope (with date-line on piece of letter) bearing Naugatuck RR Oct 1 c.d.s. to Plantsville Conn, Illustrated in Opinions VI page 92 by Clyde Jennings, Ex Gross, Foundation Cert. (1989) not present (Scott 158),

This cover is used far out of the period of other examples of F-14. The shamrock handstamp is worn, and it is accompanied by a strike of the Naugatuck Railroad Route Agent’s date stamp. It is probable that the letter was handed to a Waterbury clerk after the mails were closed and bagged. As a favor to the sender, he cancelled the stamp with the first "killer" that came to hand and handed the cover to the Route Agent who applied his own date stamp.
