1826-52 Overseas mail to Spain. Very attractive group of three entires, sent by either British Packet in 1826 at 2s2d per ½oz, via France in 1839 at 1s7d per ½oz or via France in 1852 at 10d per ¼oz (1s3d per ½oz). With no agreement between the British and Spanish Postal authorities all are only paid to the Spanish frontier and bear '10R' (Reals) handstamps for local delivery, equivalent to an extra two shillings. These very high charges continued until 1858 when agreement was finally reached and rates were reduced to 6d per ¼oz for delivery to destination.
