Two horizontal pairs, tied by New York Foreign Mail Geometric cancels, red "New York Paid Jun. 19" (1875) circular datestamp on "European Agents" corner card cover to Schlesien, Germany, stamps slightly affected from placement near edge, still Very Fine, this envelope does not appear to be large enough to require 4 times the 7c rate -- the datestamp does not have the "SUP" slug for Supplementary Mail, but we wonder if this was rated 14c for double 7c and then twice that for Supplementary Mail (Image)
