Lot Sym. Lot Description  
94 c Image5c Brown (76). Used with 3c Rose (65), tied by unusual 4-bar grid cancel, red "Boston Paid 6 Mar. 7" (1865) 6c credit datestamp on folded printed circular to Augustine, Heard & Co. in Hong Kong, China, sender's note "Printed Circular" at lower left, red "London Paid MR 15 65" transit datestamp, printed contents note that Lee & Brown Co. operating out of Bombay has closed their offices, 3c slightly affected from placement near edge of cover

VERY FINE. AN INCREDIBLY RARE USE PAYING THE 8-CENT CIRCULAR RATE FROM BOSTON TO AUGUSTINE, HEARD AND COMPANY IN HONG KONG.

This printed notice to the Hong Kong trading firm of Augustine, Heard & Co. was correctly prepaid 8c for the printed matter rate to Hong Kong by British Mail via Marseilles. Given the practice of discarding printed newspapers and notices, the survival rate for this category of mail is extremely low. We have offered only one other, in our sale of the Bernard Faust collection (Siegel Sale 1181, lot 1621). (Image)
