1859 mourning envelope to Philadelphia, USA, with an imperf. 6d with enormous margins all round, tied by a crisp barred ‘1’ numeral obliterator. A red manuscript ‘4’ and a Steamship ‘10’ are on the front of the cover, on the back are BARBADOS DE 12 1859 and ST THOMAS DE 15 1859 departure and transit cancels. An extremely fine cover, the stamp with the largest margins I have seen on cover for this issue.
