Minute marginal nick on top of stamp just mentioned for accuracy, without any importance for this item presenting the only 10 c. with sideways St. Andrew's Crosses on cover.rnThree combinations of 10 c. stamps with St. Andrew's crosses had been known in the past including one strip of five with two stamps and three Crosses, being part of the famous 'Mystery' collection which should have been offered in May 1959 at Shanahan (lot 1207), was stolen and the whereabouts of this item are unknown. There exist in addition to this presumably lost strip two covers, incl. one cover with a St. Andrew's cross below the 10 c. stamp and the item offered here which is presumably the largest combination of St. Andrew's crosses with 10 c. stamps existing.

Andrea 1850: Carta a mano 15 c. dark-vermillion type I plate 2, a single example with all four St. Andrew's Crosses at right of the stamp, fresh colour and good to large margins all round, tied by the very rare mute handstamp of Verona to entire letter to Padova, "VERONA 17/1" (1854) datestamp alongside, reverse with arrival and distribution cds's. A nearly invisible hor. fold through the third Cross is just mentioned for accuracy, this combination of the rare mute cancellation and the largest possible multiple of St. Andrew's Crosses of a first issue definitive is one of the key items of Lombardo - Veneto philately. Only three covers with all four possible Crosses attached to a 15 c. are known to the describer, this being an elusive item for the most advanced collection.rnSigned Alberto Diena, Enzo Diena and Giorgio Colla; cert.
