Scott No. 73; Estimate $4,000 - 6,000.

ONE OF ONLY TWO RECORDED PROPERLY PREPAID USES AT THE SPECIAL 13¢ BREMEN MAILS RATE TO OLDENBURG, THIS BEING THE ONLY DOUBLE-RATE EXAMPLE.

In February 1867, the rate to Oldenburg via Hamburg Mail increased to 15¢ for a period of 10 months, until December 1867. However, the rate to Oldenburg via Bremen Mail remained at 13¢. The special Bremen 13¢ rate (5½ sgr) consisted of 10¢ international transit (4½ sgr) plus 3¢ (1 sgr) German inland postage. In the United States, this 13¢ tariff was practically unknown and the few emigrant letters to Oldenburg were mostly franked with 15¢ out of ignorance - so overpaid.
