1888 Salvador 11c postal stationery cover
A privately printed 11c postal stationery envelope used in the Republic of Salvador in 1888 to London. On the front are a purple ENCAMINADO POR BLANCO Y TRIGEUROS cachet and a postmark from the town of sending. On the reverse are a blue mark from the company which produced and sent it; a New York transit mark and a red London EC arrival mark. Fascinating, scarce and fragile item.
