Niederlande - Briefe 1817
Netherlands, "DEB 119 LA BRIELLE" superb strike on reverse of very fine folded letter (1817) with "Memel 21 oct" departure datestamp send to Bordeaux with 19 decimes postage due. The cover was directed by error to Brielle (Den Briel, Zuid-Holland), the rare DÉBOURSÉ was applied to correct this mistake. This postmark of the FRENCH DÉPARTEMENT CONQUIS DES BOUCHES DE LA MEUSE is unrecorded in the 1811-1813 period and only 4-5 strikes (according to NVPH) are known after that.
