Mourning cover from Athens May 24, 1862 to London with 170L. and 2 different 80L. Paris and Provisional (therefore May 24 is the earliest known date-Kohl mentions June 5). This stamp was classified under Provisional Athens Printings but following its impression and the way of soft printing with a distinct and clear foulage it belongs in my opinion undoubtedly to the following issue of the Definitive Athens. Very fine and very rare item for the specialist.
