Scott No. O22    Estimate $3,000 - 4,000.

ONE OF THE FINEST OF EIGHT RECORDED 24¢ INTERIOR DEPARTMENT COVERS IN THE CAMPBELL CENSUS, THE ONLY ONE USED FROM NEVADA.

This is number 9 in the Campbell census of high-value official stamps on cover by Alan C. Campbell (Chronicle No. 188, November 2000, pages 287-299). The use of a 24¢ stamp on a small non-registered cover is enigmatic, but perhaps confusion of the stamp value resulted from all values of a department having the same color.
