Scott #2a

Manila to Madrid (Spain) via Isthmus of Suez
10 January 1857



Graus Certificate

Folded letter bearing a pair of the 10-Cuartos stamps (equating to 1-Real de Plata) to prepay the outbound single rate to Spain. The stamps issued prior to 1856 were not authorised for overseas mail. Hence, the presence of a ‘4Rs’ (4-Reales de Vellon) handstamp applied on receipt of the cover in Spain to indicate the postage due charge.
