  • Losnr. : 1792 DDSG

    Danube Steam Navigation Company in Valachia / Romania 1844c: Cover from Galatz to Constantinople struck with overinked circular "D.D.S.G. / GALATZ / P.P." in brownish black (Tchilinghirian fig. 808). A very scarce handstamp on cover from the well-known Zafiropulo correspondence, cover with stabilised vertical file fold well away from the strike, an elusive usage. rnNote: Tchilinghirian & Stephens mention that this handstamp was probably manufactured in Constantinople for fully prepaid covers with markings existing only for the offices in Constantinople, Galatz, Ibraila and Varna, starting in August 1844. The Lloyd Agency and Consular Office only opened in September 1845 and took over the the deep water services from the DDSG which restricted its services to the Danube and the route to Odessa. This postmark can be found up to 1865, even as an obliterator on DDSG adhesives.rnProvenance: Verschoyle collection, RL Basel (March 1980), lot 2302; Robson Lowe, Bornmouth Stamp Auctions sale 4757-59 (Feb 1983), lot 659.
