    1867/68: Rivadavia 5 c. vermilion, a used example on 1868 cover from Buenos Aires to Le Havre, France endorsed "pr. Steamer Flamsteed", tied by ten barred obliterator in black and Buenos Aires cds (Nov 26) in combination with Great Britain 1865/67 4 d. vermilion pl. 10 horizontal pair similarly tied. Carried on the Liverpool Brazil & River Plate Steam Navigation Co. "Flamsteed" to Liverpool (Jan 4, 1869), thence via London where struck with "GB /1F 60 c." accountancy marking in black. Reverse with both framed "Liverpool / Ship" and "Ship Letter / London" cds (Jan 5) in red. Charged with handstruck '10' décimes due in Calais in black on the following day. A delightful and most unusual cover. Cert. BPA (2004).rnrnNote: The cover was intended to be despatched by Royal Mail through the British Post Office in Buenos Aires and was accordingly franked with 8d. For reasons unknown, the sender failed to mail the cover at British P.O. in time and went to the Argentian P.O. where he paid the 5 centavos Argentinian Inland  postage. The RMSP ship had left, thence posted on the private vessel 'Flamsteed' and was, therefore, treated as a Ship Letter. For this reason the British 8d. postage already paid by the two 4d. adhesive stamps were not accepted and the full postage of 10 decimes (= 10 Pence), as from 1 January 1866, was collected from the recipient on delivery in France. The Anglo-French accountancy marking indicates that Britain was granted 1 Franc 60 c. from France (1s. 4d.) per 30 grams weight of mail (or approx. 5d. for this cover assuming the cover was not exceeding 10 grams weight). Corinphila would like to thank Olivier Villard (Argentina) for his kind assistance in explaining the postal handling of this unusual cover.
