VERY FINE AND BEAUTIFUL THREE-COLOR FRANKING FROM BADEN TO THE UNITED STATES.
With 1996 Buhler certificate.
VERY FINE. AN ESPECIALLY CHOICE FULLY PAID COVER FROM PRUSSIA TO NEW YORK.
The Prussia first issue stamps are especially difficult to find with large to full margins as the stamps were so closely spaced together.
EXTREMELY FINE APPEARANCE. A STUNNING USE OF THE 3-SILBERGROSCHEN ENTIRE SENT REGISTERED TO A SMALL TOWN IN MISSOURI.
Interestingly, the entire only partially paid the rate. The additional 9sg was paid separately in cash as noted on the cover. This is also a remarkable destination use. De Kalb, Missouri, in 1860, had a population of only 308. The addressee, Hiram Roberts, was one of the original settlers to this town in 1836 (one year before the county was open for settlement). The county was originally named Roberts County, after him, before changing to Buchanan County (after James Buchanan, then a U.S. Senator and later President) in 1839.
With 1993 Brettl certificate.
VERY FINE. A SPECTACULAR AND BEAUTIFUL THREE-COLOR FRANKING TO THE UNITED STATES. A LOVELY SHOWPIECE COVER.
EXTREMELY FINE. A REMARKABLE THREE-COLOR FRANKING WITH AN 18-KREUZER PAIR TO THE UNITED STATES.
Interestingly, had this cover gone via the Prussian Closed Mail, the cost would have been slightly cheaper than having gone via France and England. With 1993 Brettl certificate.
VERY FINE. AN EXTREMELY RARE THREE-COLOR FRANKING USING THE 18-KREUZER IN THE SCARCE MICHEL-LISTED BLUE SHADE.
