Italien & Gebiete - Briefe 1872
1872 (16 Nov.) entire letter from Milano to Cairo send via Brindisi, franked with ITALY 1863-65 40c. tied by "181" numeral and "MILANO STAZIONE 16 NOV 72" cds alongside in MIXED FRANKING with EGYPT 1872-75 1pi. also cancelled by the "181" numeral of Milano and a supplementary strike of the Alessandria c.d.s. Very fine. Mixed frankings Italy-Egypt send from Italy are very scarce as only few Italian companies had a supply of Egyptian stamps. This type of mixed franking is priced in the Zanaria catalogue at 5000 EUR. The cover has been expertized by Raybaudi, Silvio Sorani and Alberto Diena and certificate Guy du Vachat (Paris).
