VERY FINE. A FRESH AND CHOICE COVER FROM FRANCE TO NEW YORK WITH THE RARE BRITISH SOUTHAMPTON MOBILE BOX CANCEL AND A PORTLAND, MAINE, EXCHANGE OFFICE DATESTAMP.

This was carried on the Allan Line's North American to Quebec, arriving Oct. 16 (an Apr. 1, 1859 amendment to the 1848 US-GB treaty added the Allan Line as an American Packet). In addition to the triple-rarity of a British marking used to cancel the stamp, the Southampton Mobile Box and Portland Maine office datestamp, this is also an unusual cover directed via open mail during the French-U.S. Treaty period, and therefore due 21c for American Packet service (arrived in London as a loose ship letter). This was a more expensive routing and therefore seldom used.
