Reverse with double arc BELIZE cds in black (Oct 12) and thence via London where struck with 'GB / 1F 60c.' accountancy marking in black - either due to the adhesive stamp now being invalid (they were withdrawn in Belize in April 1860) or because the letter was found to be double (note '2' at left). Charged on arrival (Nov 17) with handstruck '16' décimes in black. The finest of all the Guatemala & British Honduras combination usages. A marvellous and famous cover.rnProvenance: Collection Grant Glassco, RL, London, 25-27 Nov 1969, lot 322; Harmers, London, 11 March 1993, lot 46; Collection Dr. Paul Kornan, Harmers, New York, 27 Sept 1994, lot 82.rn
