1868 cover to New York, endorsed ‘via Marseilles’ with a 48c, 30c and 6c paying the double 84c rate, tied by barred B62 cancels with a HONG KONG FE 10 68 dispatch datestamp on the back. London 23 MR transit and AP 5 arrival cancels are on the front of the cover. The letter rate to the USA via Marseilles was 42c per ½ oz.
