Lot 1528

1874, Rivadavia 5c. brick-red tied by mute cancel and cds. "BUENOS AIRES 30 AVRL 1874" together with France Ceres 15c. brown and 80c. carmine tied by large dotted numerals "2240" to small envelope to Genoa with private routing handstamp "POR MENDOZA" and red cds. "PLATA MARSEILLE" alongside, the cover reduced by about 3 cm, some of French franking missing, Ceres 15c. originally affixed around the envelope. Despite being reduced a very interesting cover showing the private handstamps used by some "Carterias" and the typical pen stroke to make stamp theft visible immediately
