Reverse with LYON transit cds and ANNONAY arrival (March 11) cds. Upon arrival taxed with '7' décimes in manuscript. Horizontal filing fold well away from the adhesives, addressee's name erased, nevertheless a very rare cancellation of the adhesive with the datestamp not the grill obliterator and in addition a very early entire from a rare provenance to France Sassone = € 4'850 + 25'000.rnNote: Prior to the first postal treaty in March 1855, letters to France had to be paid at 40 centesimi to the Sardinian border and were charged on arrival in France on the basis of the Franco-Sardinian postal treaty.
