"Tampico" cds (March 27) in black (Schatzkes 1581A), passed to British P.O. and franked by Great Britain 1864 1 d. red pl. 96, a block of four, cancelled by two full strikes of the "C63" obliterator in black with British P.O. 'TAMPICO / PAID' cds in black (March 27) below. Mexican P.O. 'Franqueado / Vera Cruz' cds alongside (April 2). Probably picked up by Jolly's agent in Vera Cruz as there is evidence of a vertical band at the centre of the entire and thus untaxed, then mailed on to Mexico with other received letters. The multiple with slight vertical crease and roughly severed at base but this Plate is unlisted by Stanley Gibbons used in Tampico. A remarkable and interesting entire: the sole block of four of any British stamp used on a full Mexican cover.rnNote: Illustrated in "Mexican Maritime Mail" by Karl Schimmer & John Heath on page 72.
