VERY FINE. AN EXTREMELY RARE 1851 ISSUE FRANKING TO PAY THE 45-CENT BRITISH MAIL RATE TO BUENOS AIRES VIA SOUTHAMPTON.
This is a very rare franking and a fascinating round-trip transatlantic cover from the U.S. to Argentina via Great Britain. A similar cover, with three 12c stamps placed at left and three 3c at right was offered in our 2019 sale of the William H. Gross collection (Sale 1211, lot 277).
