Chrysanthemum, Waterbury, Connecticut, Rohloff F-3, near-complete strike on 3c ultramarine, tied to cover to Southbury, Connecticut, from the Chase correspondence, postmarked "Waterbury / CT / Jan / 24", reduced at right, barely touching a few perfs and not detracting from the appeal of this rare  cancellation, with only a handful of examples recorded on cover, an outstanding fancy cancel; ex Mechin, Hauser (Christie's Robson Lowe, December 13, 1990, lot 27).
