VERY FINE. A STRIKING USE OF A 10-CENT 1855 TYPE III-IV COMBINATION PAIR ON A COLORFUL 21-CENT AMERICAN PACKET RATE COVER TO BORDEAUX, FRANCE.

French Circular #67 eliminated the discriminatory Great Britain 10 decimes packet fee for American Packet mail to France and reduced the French collections to 8 decimes per 7.5 grams, effective Sep. 1, 1851. Therefore this cover lacks the discriminatory sea postage charge found on other U.S.-France covers even after the 1848 U.S.-Great Britain treaty ended the discriminatory/retaliatory rates for mail between the U.S. and Great Britain. This cover shows the 21c U.S. postage under the 1848 treaty -- consisting of 16c packet and 5c inland.

Sep. 14, 1857" circular datestamp on blue folded cover to Bordeaux, France, sender's blue oval handstamp, red "Boston Paid 24 Sep. 23" credit datestamp, French arrival datestamp (Oct. 5), transit and receiving backstamps, lightly toned along horizontal file fold

EXTREMELY FINE. A RARE 1855 10-CENT IMPERFORATE MULTIPLE CONTAINING TWO TYPE IV POSITIONS, USED TO PAY THE DOUBLE RATE TO FRANCE. MAGNIFICENT QUALITY FOR SUCH AN IMPORTANT AND RARE CLASSIC UNITED STATES COVER.

Although several covers are known with strips of three of the 10c 1855, which include one Type IV position, we are aware of only five multiples larger than a pair on cover that contain more than one Type IV (thanks to Michael Perlman for sharing his records). The superb strip on this cover is the finest of the five recorded.

Annotated and signed by Stanley B. Ashbrook in pencil on back: "In My Opinion This Cover is Genuine in Every Respect. Plate Positions 54L1-55L1-56L1. Types IV, IV, II"
