1858 Transatlantic incoming mail. Very fine unpaid entire sent from Boston, United States to Liverpool. Carried per Cunard steamer "America" with a black "5" cents handstamp at top right for the share of the U.S. inland rate debited from the British P.O. with a black "1/-" handstamp indicating the amount due from the Addressee upon delivery with an Experimental fully dotted Liverpool arrival cds in black alongside for MY.4.1858, the dotted datestamp was originally an experimental obliterator for stamps but was not adopted and so became a seldom used transit datestamp instead. With a Boston dispatch cds on reverse for AP.21.1858. A lovely example of this difficult datestamp on cover.
