VERY FINE APPEARANCE. A RARE MIXED FRANKING -- MIXED COUNTRIES AND MIXED ISSUES -- PAYING POSTAGE FROM CUBA TO THE UNITED STATES AND BEYOND TO SPAIN. ESPECIALLY DESIRABLE WITH THE NEW YORK FOREIGN MAIL GEOMETRIC CANCELS.

There are ten recorded mixed franking covers sent from Cuba to Spain. This cover is one of the most attractive of the Quadrado correspondence, because it has a large number of stamps, all of which are tied on the front, including by NYFM cancels.
