ISLE OF MAN. 1704 folded letter to London datelined Port St Mary 7 Apr 1704 that was carried to Amsterdam as there was no regular postal services from the Isle of Man until 1765, and outside mail had to rely on passing packet boats, which is why it went to Amsterdam. In Amsterdam it was charged 3 stuivers and then delivered to London on May 29th where it was charged 8d. A very rare letter and the earliest known postal item from the Isle of Man outside museums. A very important collectors item.
