Nice entire 1846 London local post with some fascinating markings. Front cover has “Chief Office 1d Paid 2 line in red, which is usually accompanied by the backstamp “PD JY 10 1846” code 12NN (Noon posting) in red, but has also been backstamped by “1 An 1 JY 10 1846” code C, which is usually used in conjunction with the oval number obliteration.

As a final salute to this fabulous little cover, there is an intact wax seal that has a rooster in the centre and the poignant words “WHILE I LIVE I’LL CROW”.

Very nice cover
