Dec. 20" (1861) circular datestamp on 3c Pink entire (U35) to Santiago, Chile, clear strike of "Panama JA 7 1862 A" British P.O. transit datestamp, red "45" rate handstamp for internal Chilean postage due

EXTREMELY FINE. A SPECTACULAR AND VERY RARE FRANKING FOR THE DOUBLE 34-CENT RATE TO CHILE BY AMERICAN AND BRITISH PACKETS VIA PANAMA. ALMOST CERTAINLY A UNIQUE USE OF THE 1861 5-CENT BROWN YELLOW (OR BUFF).

The 68c postage on this cover to Chile correctly paid the double 34c rate, which included 10c for American Packet service to Panama and 24c for the 12p British Packet rate to Chile. Such covers were normally marked with a credit to England, however, in this case no credit was applied, perhaps because the letter originated in California and was not marked at a U.S. foreign-mail exchange office.

VERY FINE. A COLORFUL AND EXCEEDINGLY RARE FRANKING FOR THE DOUBLE-33-CENT RATE TO CAPE OF GOOD HOPE VIA ENGLAND.
