EXTREMELY FINE. A BEAUTIFUL AND EXCEEDINGLY RARE USE OF THE 30-CENT 1860 ISSUE TO GREECE.
This stunning cover, from the Reverend Hill find, was sent prepaid for the 42c Prussian Closed Mail rate. Our computerized records contain just one other cover to Greece with the 30c stamp, a single on a cover from the Rev. Hill correspondence, mailed in May 1861.
Ex Bilden and "Sevenoaks".
VERY FINE USE OF THE 30-CENT AND 10-CENT 1861 ISSUE ON COVER TO GREECE. A VERY RARE DESTINATION IN THIS PERIOD.
The cover is franked to pay the 40c rate via Prussian Closed Mail, which was established beginning in May 1863. Covers to Greece in this period are extremely rare.
