Estimate; $15,000 - 20,000.

ONE OF ONLY TWO RECORDED EXAMPLES OF THE SPANISH "NUEVA ORLEANS" OVAL WREATH POSTMARK IN PRIVATE HANDS.

Louisiana was under Spanish administration as part of the Viceroyalty of New Spain (1762-1802), when it was retroceded to France according to the Third Treaty of San Ildefonso (1800) and the Treaty of Aranjuez (1801). However, Spain agreed to continue administering the territory until November 30th of 1803 when the French took possession of the colony, three weeks before Louisiana Purchase on December 20th. Additional significance of this cover is that it is one of only two ship’s register covers known originating from a colony and sent to a non-Spanish destination (this item had to be submitted to the Spanish consul to Bordeaux, as indicated on front). Additionally this is an exceptional postal usage during the short period of Spanish provisional administration after the official transfer to France.
