In type 1 the upper cross bar of the 'T' is at an angle.In type 2 it is more horizontal.The pair on cover is type 1.
The cover has a Bela Szekula dealers label.These were pasted on covers by Bela.For more reading below:

The slant "T" type also shows the three bars of the "E" of equal length, whereas the straight "T" shows the "E" with its middle bar shorter than the other two. (Especially so in Floortrader's example.) Is that always so?

I think this cover was uprated by maybe 10 pesos for philatelic reasons because the entire set is on cover.I don't know the exact rates for the 1930's

1911 cover Santiago/Paris.Franked with Sc.85,86 & 81(Juan Fernandez overprint) on postal stationery Colon type of 1905.




In 1910, a syndicate including government officials succeeded in getting approval to overprint large quantities of a new definitive issue for use in the sparsely populated Juan Fernandez Islands. This was a speculative issue. In addition to creating stamps for the philatelic market, it would make certain value of the unoverprinted definitive issue more scarce and, therefore, more valuable. The ensuing scandal forced the government to make the overprinted stamps valid for use throughout Chile.

A redirected cover from Chillan (Chile) to Menton (France).
1) Chillan 23 April 1893. - Transit Valparaiso 30 april 1893
2)Arrival Bordeaux France 8 june 1893
3)Arrival Clarens Switzerland 10 june 1893
4)Departure Clarens 11 june 1893
5)Arrival Menton (Alexandra Hotel) France 12 june 1893

The sender wrote Canton de Vaud Clarens Suisse.It could be the person to whom it was addressed to was no longer at that address and a new address furnished.Menton & Alexandra hotel were written as a correction and the old address and c/o lined over.The violet Clarens departure handstamp means it was sent out from Clarens.
There is no postage due indication.
The postal service was very swift in those days as the cancels speak for themselves.It would be no faster today.
