Lot 10102
1870 (11.12) Folded cover sent by “BALLON MONTÉ” named “Ville de Paris” from Paris to Alexandria, franked 1867 France Laureated 40c. (fault at foot), tied Etoile 22, with PARIS / 11 DEC 70 circular datestamp alongside, manuscript of tax due 6, also framed PD, backstamped PARIS / 26 JUIL.71, PARIS ETRANGER / 28 JUIL. 71 and arrival ALEXANDRIE / EGYPTE / 4 AOUT 71 circular datestamp.

Note: This letter flew on LA VILLE DE PARIS and took off on December 11, 1870. Carried by unfavourable winds, it landed in Prussia and was captured in NASSAU (Germany). Consequently there was a long delay before the mail was sent back to Paris, to be forwarded to the various destination. It was taxed 1 1/2 times the shortfall because in the meantime the rate to Egypt had risen to 80c. since July 1, 1871, extremely rare usage with the arrival bs
