6165 imageZala Somogyi Steamship Co 1875: Lake Balaton steamer service between Boglar and Rêv-Fulöp, (-) green, Die Cut and embossed in relief on white paper, the famous used example on small piece, well tied by "RÉV-FULÖP" datestamp (23 Oct 1875) in black. An outstanding example of this rarity with just 11 known examples printed in green. Specialists have stated that the colours may have corresponded to the D.D.S.G. stamps of the period (thus this would be a 10 kreuzer adhesive), however the general concensus, led by Dr. Ferenc Nagy is that, regardless of colour, the stamps were sold at 5 kreuzer each. The three covers known are all housed in the Budapest Postal Museum, 18 stamps exist of which 11 are recorded in green: the known dates of use run from 17 July until November 1875. A splendid and rare stamp. Cert. Holcombe (1992).rnProvenance: Collection 'Antoine', Corinphila sale 85, Oct 1992, lot 3651.rnrn (Image 1) (Image 2) (Image 3)

This stamp would have paid for transport across the Lake to a Government Post Office. Local Posts were cancelled by decree on 31 Dec 1888, thus the period of use for a Tyrvi 5 öre was very brief.
