1875 1¼d UPU foreign postcard/ Overseas mail. Very fine 1¼d "Penny Farthing" UPU foreign postcard that could be sent to all participating members of the UPU at the flat 1¼d rate from 1st July 1875, sent from London to Paris cancelled by a London "N/25" duplex for OC.22.1875 with a red "POST CARDS TO THIS ADDRESS CANNOT BE FORWARDED" handstamp, due to France not agreeing to join the Universal Postal Union until 1st January 1876 this pre-paid postcard was against regulations. A scarce example of this inter-UPU period mailing and a magnificent strike of this rare handstamp.
