1852 3d. red and 6d. slate-violet used on G.B. 1d. stationery envelope from Goderich to England, each with concentric rings cancels, showing manuscript "1d", despatch c.d.s. and, on reverse, London U.C., Liverpool and arrival datestamps; the envelope with some light staining yet still a fine and most unusual combination cover. Greene Foundation Certificate (1989). Photo

Note: Apparently the sender was convinced this franking would match the 10d. letter rate to UK by Cunard Line, which the postmaster apparently at first glance also accepted and stamped the cover "8d Stg" (=10d.) but then cancelled this marking by two strikes of the target cancel and rated the cover as "d1" due, not accepting the British envelope.
