Very Fine-Extremely Fine and rare combination strip with two Type IV stamps--a very attractive use to France.

The 1857 U.S.-France treaty set a fully prepaid rate of 15¢ per quarter-ounce, effective April 1, shortly before this was sent. The amount credited to other countries varied according to the ship used to convey the mail. In this case, the British Cunard steamer had already departed, so it was put on an American vessel; therefore, the credit was 6¢ of the 15¢, or in this case, a double credit of 12¢.

Ex Ryohei Ishikawa and Joseph Hackmey.
