Stock Code: P190013196
1893 Missent mail. Very fine envelope bearing a 1d lilac (SG 172) tied by a crisp Mountain View/ California cds for FE.28.1893. with an additional circular obliterator at right. Addressed to Woking (England) backstamped accordingly by a Woking arrival cds for March and a New York transit, machine cancel for MR.6.1893. An unusual cover most likely missent to the West Coast of the United States and returned via New York to Woking. If this was sent from abroad it would have presumably been addressed to "England" as this is not it would suggest this was a sending that went astray and had an interesting journey overseas and back again. Wonderful.
