Hello all,
I received this beauty today.
Can you tell me what you think?
The 4c stamp looks quite fresh and might even be thought of having been added later.
But I dont know why someone would do that, is this kind of cover not very common?
The cancel does seem to extend to the 4c stamp but was probably not pressed through all the way?
I paid around $2.80 in total for this.
What do you think?

1c envelope would be for a printed matter rate. 5c is the correct letter rate for US-Switzerland. The stamp looks like it belongs.

Thanks for that info!
Im happy to have gotten such a clean stamp on it, even though the cancel on the 1c embossed stamp is somewhat overkill...

Yes I love that script!
People back then could write so beautifully.
