Austrian Lloyd Agency in Ancona, Papal States 1839: Entire letter from Ancona to Patras, Greece struck on despatch with oval "AGENZIA DEL LLOYD AUSTRIACO / ANCONA" in black (Tchilinghirian fig. 457). Manuscript '18' (kreuzer) prepaid on despatch on reverse alongside neat 'Patras' arrival datestamp (April 9) in black. Ancona was under French Naval occupation until 1838, and thus this entire is believed to be one of the earliest known usages of this marking.
