6056 imageDanube Steam Navigation Co in Valachia 1868 (March 14): Unpaid Entire letter written by the DDSG agency in Giurgevo and sent to Bucharest with a clear strike of the rare framed "D.D.S.G. / AGENTIE / GIURGEVO" in blue (Tchilinghirian fig. 799). The entire was despatched at the Romanian P.O. with fair wreathed "GIURGIU 14 / 3" cds in black on obverse (Kiriac fig. 396). Reverse shows fair "BUCURESCI DIMINEATA" arrival cds (Kiriac fig. 430). Strong horizontal filing fold through the despatch datestamp not distracting from this very interesting cover.rnNote: This rectangular Giurgevo marking seemed to have the function of a firm handstamp indicating the sender as already suggested by Hurt & Kelly (1950) on p. 45. Tchilinghirian & Stephen stated in 1966, that its actual status remained uncertain. However the present entire written at the DDSG Agency itself as well as other covers from the literature suggest that this handstamp's function may have simply been to indicate the sender. Interestingly this cover was not given from the DDSG agency to the consular P.O. but to the Romanian P.O. (Image 1) (Image 2)
