    Austrian Lloyd Agency in Burgas 1867/78: 2 s. yellow and 3 s. green, each in horizontal pairs, used to pay the 10 soldi rate from Burgas to Constantinople, tied by BURGAS circular datestamps (15/5) in black (Tchilinghirian fig. 936). Side flaps mising, reverse with 'Lloyd Agenzie / Costantinopoli' arrival cds in black. Minor file fold at left and horizontal fold at base not affecting the attractive appearance. A rare usage of these values on a Levant cover, however Burgas in particular appears to have utilised these two values in greater quantities than other Offices, especially during 1873. Signed Ferchanbauer. Opinion Todd (2014).rnrnNote: This cover is illustrated in Tchilinghirian & Stephen on page 502.
