Lot 1213    

(Mail Routes) Steam Mazatlan, oval handstamp and "San Francisco, Cal., Feb 22" cds (Williams SAF-600) on incoming folded letter datelined "Fuerte, Jvre 28 de 1865", with additional "San Francisco, Cal., 10, Feb 22" integral rate cds used as due marking (William SAF-330); cover with some light toning along file fold, otherwise Very Fine, and a very rare usage from El Fuerte, Mexico.
Estimate    $750 - 1,000.

The letter would have to have crossed from Republican held territory into French held Mazatlan for a steamship to San Francisco, so this may explain the long time between writing in Fuerte and receipt in San Francisco.

Realized: $750
