Cuba 1850 - Red Matanzas Baeza on wrapper to La Habana.
A nice strike of a MATANZAS, 1 JUN 1850? Baeza applied in red on this wrapper (no contents) from Matanzas to Havana, addressed to "Seņor Magistrado de la Real Aud(ienci)a Pretorial Juez Gral. de Bienes de Difuntos de La Habana" - "3" rate applied also in red on front. Overall a fairly good strike of this Baeza mark but the year of use is blurry, appearing to be 1850 - Listed in Ginovart y Tizon as Type I (in use from 1849 to 1851) with a rarity factor of "ME" (Muy Escasa - Very Scarce - from 50 to 100 exist)
