THE ONLY RECORDED 30¢ FRENCH MAIL RATE TO AUSTRALIA CORRECTLY SENT VIA FRENCH PACKET.

Starnes lists a 30¢ French Mail rate to Australia from 1857 to 1870 - this may be the only properly carried example surviving. Allan Line Packets were treated as American Packets by the USA, but British Packets by France - which explains the French "BR" handstamp.
