One of your readers was asking about a price on lot 640 of the December
13, 1897 Chapman sale, lot 640. This lot sold for $1.00, less than the
$1.30 that he found the envelope he found had written on it. The extra
30 cents would have been too much for postage on one lot back then.
This buyer probably purchased another lot along with lot 640.
I hope this helps.
Dave Hirt also provided the price realized for the lot. Thanks!
