Romania 1868/70: The famous cover bearing 3 bani violet, horizontal strip
of three and tri-sected 3 bani, used to pay the 10 bani single rate
on 1872 cover to Bacau, all stamps tied by two strikes of the JASSY
/ SERA datestamp (25/2) in black (Kiriac fig. 468) with framed
‘P.D.’ alongside. Reverse with ‘Bacau / Posta’ arrival cds
(27.2.72) in black. The strip with scissor cuts in margin only
between the stamps is of no significance, this being one of the
three trisected 3 bani frankings known to date (the other two were
also auctioned by Corinphila, sale 194, lot 5138 and 5139; all
three covers were used from Jassy. A splendid cover in fresh and
fine quality. A major classical rarity of Romania for the
connoisseur. Illustrated in Heimbüchler II on page 294. Cert.
Heimbüchler (2014).
