image 30c Orange (71). Cancelled by clearly struck blue "Baltimore Md. Jul. 21 '65" double-circle datestamp before use on this cover, tied by red "New York Paid 18 Dec. ?" (1866) credit datestamp and reused on small cover to Switzerland, French transit also ties stamp, red boxed "P.D." handstamp, receiving backstamp, missing backflap and stamp with small tear at top right, Very Fine appearance, a remarkable use which "overpays" the 21c rate by French mail, the foreign mail office in New York must have been fooled into thinking this originated in Baltimore and was correctly prepaid, we have always thought the operations of cancelling stamps and marking letters for foreign credits etc. were done in two separate steps by two different clerks -- this supports that theory (Image)
