    Modena 1852 definitive 25 c. black on light buff, a fresh and fine example tied by six barred mute obliterator to 1858 outer letter sheet to Milano with crisp GUASTALLA (June 16) cds (Mioni type 3) at right in blue. Oval framed AGENZIE DEL LLOYD AUSTRIACO GUASTALLA also in blue alongside. Milano arrival cds (June 17) on reverse. The Austrian Lloyd opened Agencies in Piacenza (Duchy of Parma), Guastalla (Duchy of Modena) and Pontelagoscuro (Papal States) along the River Po between 1852 and 1858 for Lloyd Austriaco Ships that sailed this river to link mails from Trieste to Lago Maggiore. This cover also helps support Tchilinghirian's notion that these cancels served the purpose of despatch or arrival markings for mail that was handled by the Lloyd Austriaco Agency. An extremely rare handstamp, Tchilinghirian & Stephen described those from Piacenza and Pontelagoscuro, but not from Guastalla. Illustrated and described on page 39 in Vaccari - Modena 1852-1863. Certs. Vaccari (1987), RPS (2003).
