Stock Code: P13406960

1840 2d Mulready Envelope (Forme 1, Stereo a200). Very fine used example sent from Ravensglass, Cumbria to the Grand Duchy of Oldenburg, Germany neatly cancelled by a crisp red MC. Backstamped with a large red Ravensglass udc and a London transit cds for AU.7.1840. The rate to Oldenburg via France at this time was 1s4d so the manuscript charge at upper left "Paid 1/2" would appear to be correct when added to the original 2d for the Mulready, however this appears to have been deleted and the letter re-rated at lower left "Paid 1s", the "10" rating at right is almost certainly a charge for local delivery. Light overall toning nevertheless a magnificent and unique overseas franking, this being the only recorded use of a 2d Mulready to Germany. Ex. Mayflower. 2010 BPA Cert.
