    Danube Steam Navigation Co in Bulgaria: 1867 10 kr. in an unusually light green shade, Type I, a fine used example on July 1878 cover from Ruschuk to Galatz, tied by light "RUSTZUK 9 / VII" cds of the DDSG post office in blue (Tchilinghirian fig. 916). Reverse with "GALATI 14 JUL 78" cds of the Romanian post office. On obverse a '60' (bani) due was added in blue crayon for the Romanian part of the journey. File folds well away from the adhesive, a most interesting cover with a usage of a DDSG adhesive long after the foundation of the UPU.rnNote: The postal service of the DDSG came to an end in the Romanian ports in 1873 and in the ports in Bulgaria, Serbia and Odessa in 1880.
