THE EARLIEST RECORDED EXAMPLE OF THE NEW 10D RATE TO THE UNITED KINGDOM VIA MARSEILLES THAT CAME INTO EFFECT SEPTEMBER 1, 1863.

A Postal Notice dated September 1st 1863 (N.Z. Gazette, September 12) gave details of the proposed change of the rates via Marseilles with the charge being increased to 10d. With regard to letters sent to the U.K., these should be brought in "as early as possible". This cover is prepaid with the usual 3d and 6d values, but with a Richardson 1d issue added to make up the new 10d rate.

A RARE AND MOST ATTRACTIVE FRANKING FOR THE 9D RATE TO THE UNITED KINGDOM VIA MARSEILLES.

Whilst the additional French rate of 3d. per ¼oz. was introduced on March 27th 1857, it was not until January 1st 1863 that a 3d value postage stamp was available. Nine months later, on September 12th 1863, the French rate of 3d was changed to 4d for ½oz. letters. Use of the 3d. value for its intended use was therefore very short lived and covers in this period are comparatively rare.
