    1860: 40 c. in the extremely rare shade 'rosa lilla', a fine and fresh adhesive with good to large margins, well embossed, tied by Austrian-style two-line "TRESCORRE 9. NOV" (1860) handstamp (Sassone BG = 7 punti), on cover to Bregenz, Austria, endorsed "über Lecco / Chiavenna /Splügen / Coira / St. Gallen". On reverse, an indistinct Sardinian ambulant and a Swiss "MELANO 9 NOV 60" transit cds were struck. Correct franking for Sardinia and Switzerland, the receiver had to pay '15' (kreuzer) due upon receipt for the third Austrian rayon. An amazing cover with this extremely rare shade, full of postal history content to this rare destination. Signed A. Diena & G. Bolaffi; cert. E. Diena (1986) Sassone = € 55'000 + 600.rnNote: The mail route intended for this letter was via the Splügen and Graubünden to the upper Rhine valley and the to Bregenz in Vorarlberg. However, as the transit cds of Melano at the Lake of Lugano shows, this item took a totally different way, presumably via Milano to Lugano and Bellinzona and then via the San Bernadino to Graubünden and further to its destination. In addition this letter was sent after September 1859, thus a direct mailing to Austria from Sardinia would have been possible resulting in a rate of only 20 centesimi for the sender.
