Royal Mail Steam Packet Company 1875: 10 c. rose, perf. 12½, the famous usage on small envelope addressed to a Monsieur Léonard Tizon in Gonaives, Haiti tied on despatch by oval framed "FRANCO" in black applied in Santo Domingo. A remarkable and very rare cover, there being but three examples of this stamp recorded on letter: one ex the Jan Berg collection ex Puerto Cabello (lot 6077) and the other a cover from Haiti illustrated in Ringstöm & Tester which in this describer's opinion appears doubtful; this being the sole example used from the Dominican Republic.
