Lot 84

1860 (DEC 27), Lettersheet franked with 1859, 10 cents green, vertical strip of 3, tied by New Orleans cds., addressed to "Trie" in France, misdirected via Prussian closed mail to Aachen (most likely the address read as "Trier" in Prussia). A red boxed "Aachen franco" was applied and annulated when the mistake was detected and the letter returned to New York with black "N. YORK AM. PKT. 30 / FEB 10" on front. Then it was again sent to France on February 11 with credit '12 cents' and finally arrived on February 26. A most interesting letter which crossed the atlantic three times in 2 months.
