    Description
    A spectacular transatlantic letter from Highland Illinois 15.9 1850 reposted in Paris (complete contents on two large sheets). On front US pmk "PAID 10" for the rate to the harbour and French due mark "12" decimes for the shipping rate to France. Further red arrival "OUTRE-MER LE HAVRE 25 OCT 50" and on back arr. pmk "PARIS 1 29.10 1850". In Paris it was of unknown reasons much later readdressed and franked with 15 c. (slightly cut in at bottom) paying the local rate in Paris, the due mark and US pmk crossed over and by the Post endorsed "Trouvé dans la Boite" (found in the mail box). Finally it got on the back an arr. pmk "PARIS 9 3.2 1851". It was in the auction by Ivy & Mader "Masterpieces of French Philately" in New York 1998, where it erronously was said to be unintentionally transatlantic, based on cert. von der Weid. The cover is signed Calves. EXCEPTIONAL EXHIBITION RARITY
