Alternatively this could have bee a double rate cover with twice 10 soldi in the new tariff.

Certificate Holcombe (1996) Ferchenbauer = € 3'000 for a franking of five 15 s. adhesives. rnNote: The rate is not quite well understood by the describer. The reverse shows a '4' in red crayon implicating a fourth rate letter. However a 20 soldi rate to Italy did not exist in 1869, it was 25 soldi with 10 soldi for the Levant and 15 soldi for Austria and Italy. If the present item was a cover of up to three loths, it would have been therefore overfranked by 5 soldi. However, the post office in Adrianopel is known for its innovative calculation of rates, compare Ferchenbauer volume IV on page 565.
