Documentary use of a negative-image patent medicine cancel that reads 'Juniper * Dean * Street * London'. John Juniper patented Essence of Peppermint in 1762. The image at the center of the cancel appears to be an amphora. Stamp is valued above as a single, as the pair is reconstructed and the left stamp is torn.
