1346 c Image12c Green (117). Two singles, used with 2c Brown (113). and tied by Leaf cancels on cover to Copenhagen, Denmark, red "New York Paid All Direct Sep. ?"

VERY FINE APPEARANCE. THIS IS THE ONLY REPORTED USE OF THE 12-CENT 1869 PICTORIAL ISSUE ON COVER TO DENMARK. IT IS ALSO BELIEVED TO BE THE ONLY RECORDED 1869 FRANKING PAYING DOUBLE 13-CENT RATE TO DENMARK VIA NORTH GERMAN UNION DIRECT MAIL.

Between June 1868 and July 1870, the North German Union Direct rate to Denmark (via Bremen or Hamburg) was 13c (16c unpaid). During the same period, the NGU Closed Mail rate (via England, Belgium and Germany) was 18c (21c unpaid). Effective July 1, 1870, these rates were lowered to 10c and 13c, respectively (prepaid only). This cover was sent at double the earlier 13c NGU Direct rate. It is the only example of this franking/rate we have encountered.
