Gaertner has scarce 1s green and carmine on cover

Christoph Gaertner Philatelie has this 1s green and carmine on cover in their next auction. Not only are these scarce on cover (just over 50 are known), this is possibly a unique usage, as it was sent at the AR (advice of receipt) rate, with two strikes of the “AR” handstamps adjacent. The starting price was €400, but was unsold. Perhaps because the 1s isn’t particularly tied to the cover, but it does seem to be genuine.
