20259 Sassone Sassone image1941 (May 31) Greek 2d non-overprinted stationery card apparently travelled to the Italian Navy Command in Patras, correctly paying the domestic rate and the tax of 10 lepta with hand overprinted "Previdenza" 10L single postage due with previous overprint, tied by Keramiai (Cephalonia) dotted cds (Astolfi fig. 1, p. 10).
