530° c ImageTwo strips of three of the 5¢ 1847 Issue, originally forming a block of six and containing Types A and B double transfers, on a folded cover to St. Catharine's, Canada West

5¢ Red Brown (1), two strips of three, originally a block of six, Positions 78-80R and 88-90R with Double Transfers Types A and B, margins to slightly in, worn-plate impression, tied by red "New-York Jan. 17" circular datestamp and black "Queenston U.C. Jan. 20 1850" exchange circular datestamp on folded cover to St. Catharines, Canada West, manuscript "1/6" rate and endorsed "Paid to the Lines" at top, stamps additionally cancelled with red circular grids, both strips with creases including heavy file crease in left stamp of right strip, expertly restored

Fine appearance--a rare multiple franking to Canada and especially noteworthy with the two major double transfers.

The sender franked this with two strips of three of 5¢ stamps, intending to pay 30¢ U.S. postage for the triple rate. However, in March 1849 the half-ounce rate increments were eliminated, so this should have been charged 40¢. The U.S. post office either assumed the weight was under one ounce, or overlooked the additional 10¢ postage that should have been assessed. The Canadian post office determined it weighed over one ounce and charged a quadruple rate.
