    1858 (Jan 1): Hand-written receipt for a monthly salary of the Post & Telegraph officer, for 400 piastres for the month of January, for a Telegraph Officer of the 2nd Class, one Mr. N. P. Dimo. The form struck with oval framed "F(ürstlich) W(allachischen) Telegrafen Amt / Buzeu" in blue. At left, further manuscript  "das sind 400 Piaster". An unusual form and the first of its kind we have encountered - even more interesting given the year date and the pending issue of adhesive stamps.rnrn
