VERY FINE APPEARANCE. A RARE THREE-COUNTRY FRANKING, COMBINING THE STAMPS OF PERU, GREAT BRITAIN AND THE UNITED STATES ON AN INBOUND COVER TO NASHVILLE. A PHENOMENAL RARITY. ONLY THREE SUCH COMBINATION COVERS ARE RECORDED.

According to Michael Laurence, the Peruvian government required one dinero postage on all letters leaving Peru through foreign post offices. This could be construed as a tax or as a response to losing business to foreign post offices. The 6p British postage paid for its passage from Peru to Panama. The 10c 1869 stamp paid for carriage from Panama to the United States.

There are four triple-combination franking covers known with the 1869 Pictorial Issue, all from Peru. One other with the same franking is known (Smithsonian National Postal Museum collection), on which the 10c stamp was cancelled on arrival in New York. Another triple-combination franking with the 30c 1869 is part of the Hirzel Collection in the Swiss Museum in Berne. The third triple-combination franking (with a 10c 1869) realized $70,000 hammer in our 1997 Rarities of the World auction.

There is disagreement among experts as to whether the 10c stamp originated on this cover or replaced a missing stamp. According to the Laurence 10c book, several other triple-combination covers with Bank Note stamps are known from this same correspondence. However, the New York Steamship marking incorporates the 10c due marking, and the stamp was not cancelled on arrival. Mr. Laurence surmises that the original 10c may have fallen off during transit, the U.S. postage portion was marked unpaid, and the 10c stamp was added at a later date. However, the physical evidence indicates that the 10c stamp might have originated. The toning around the 10c perforations effectively tie it to the cover, and the inside shows similar gum toning from the three stamps.

Ex Hughes and Krug. This item received a negative P.F. certificate many years ago. However, it is signed by Stanley B. Ashbrook, who considered it to be genuine in every respect, and it is accompanied by a 1991 P.S.E. certificate indicating that noted postal historians Richard Frajola and Calvet M. Hahn had examined the cover and also considered it genuine. Our estimate acknowledges this past controversy, and the cover is offered with full disclosure. (Image)
