    1858: 80 pa. bright red on thin yellowish wove paper, a used block of four with enormous margins all round, of fine fresh impression but for file folds between the stamps in margin only, neatly cancelled by two strikes of scarce framed FRANCO / FOLTICHENII handstamps in blue ink (Kiriac fig. 307). A truly wonderful piece, illustrated in the Heimbüchler handbook I on page 139. Exceptionally rare - a unique multiple of the 80 parale, being the only recorded used block. Cert. Pfenninger (1971), Heimbüchler (2019).rnProvenance: Collection Edouard Cohen, Lisbon.
