Tester, this stamp was created to indicate payment for an additional charge levied on mails carried aboard the railway between Czernawadoa on the Danube and Kustendje on the Black Sea. The railway, only 47 miles long, was created to shorten the trip on the waterways between the Danube Steam Navigation Company's and the Austrian Lloyd Company's ships.
