Cat. #0006111132: JEREMY BRETT

Highly rare, very limited edition Sherlock Holmes-themed first day cover issued by Benham (issue #00292), boldly signed in blue fountain pen, as were all of these for the firm, in the early 1990s. In good condition, with gentle corner wear. Classically handsome English-born Jeremy Brett was arguably the definitive onscreen Sherlock Holmes, in the superb series by Grenada Studios in the early 1990s. He died of heart failure at the age of 61, after years of eluding fans and using secretaries to answer his fan mail, and this is a nice, incontrovertibly authentic exemplar.
