I marked this last one in the books as 54L1L.
I am getting real close to the half way mark.
Plating these A relief is real frustrating.
I am considering making up a chart like my guide dot charts for the top recut lines.

The A reliefs are often tough.

This was a fun acquisition. Nice provenance with this folded letter, it was purchased in the Heinrich Kohler auction of the Jan Berg Maritime collection. It has a pair of Type IV's and I'm 99.9% sure they are 81L1L (inverted transfer) and 82L1L DT.

The cover





The pair

stallzer - you can raise your % to 100%. 81-82L1L it is. Very nice position piece there.

The Garnier correspondence is voluminous/huge. The agent Ed Locquet is also quite common on these.

Yours is paying the 5c single rate to France, via British Open Mail by British Packet. The US and France used differing weight scales. In the US it was rated at the single rate up to 1/2 oz (5c). In France it was rated 26 decimes due, which is a double rate for them, for a letter weighing between 7.5-15 grams. I should add that the 'check' mark at upper left is common on such letters to flag the extra (French) rate.

Can you determine the year of mailing from a backstamp or contents?

I'm guessing your cover was 1856, and, if so, it was carried on the Cunard steamer Asia, which sailed from NYC on August 20th, and arrived in Liverpool on Aug 31st. Then transit to France.

Very nice, congrats, and welcome to what I enjoy, which is stamps and stamp varieties, combined with Postal History. You get the best of both worlds.

Certainly can. 1856.

EDIT - Your last reply beat me to posting this. As usual you are spot on!

The back stamps





Inner flap





And this came in the auction folder but no detail as to who wrote it up. Was this Jan Berg's write up? I see it traveled on a Cunard steamer but my German isn't good.

Its echoing much of what I said.
It was carried on the Cunard "Asia", and it reached its destination at Nantes on Sep 2.

It breaks down the 26 decimes as -
10dec - sea carriage
6 dec - British Transit
10dec - French Inland

I double checked the above numbers and they are the correct breakdown for the double French rate.
