VERY FINE. THIS IS THE ONLY EXAMPLE OF THIS "VIA PANAMA" ILLUSTRATED DESIGN WE HAVE ENCOUNTERED. A WONDERFUL 1861 ISSUE TRANSATLANTIC COVER.

The illustrated "Via Panama" envelopes were published and used mainly from 1858 through 1860. This is the only example of this particular type we have seen or could locate in our Levi records. It is used quite late, but was probably published years earlier.
