Details:

CUBA 1903 - (EDIFIL 82 - 241x105 mm - Knife 59)
2c carmine on white, uprated stamped envelope from the 1903 issue used within Havana in 1906. Scarce privately printed corner card of THE EQUITABLE LIFE ASSURANCE SOCIETY - LA EQUITATIVA DE LOS ESTADOS UNIDOS and LA MAS PODEROSA DEL MUNDO seal on back flap. Indicium cancelled with HABANA - FEB 19, 1906 - CUBA duplex cds. NO RECLAMADA and NON RÉCLAMÉ auxiliary markings applied on front. Large CANCELADO applied in blue over address. Seldom seen DEVUELVASE AL ESCRITOR "pointing hand" also applied on front twice, once in red and again in black. Very interesting and unusual. These stamped envelopes with privately printed corner cards are scarce and command a premium over the same envelope without the printed corner card. The Edifil catalogue price for a used 160x89mm envelope from the same 1903 issue with a printed corner card is € 95,- (US $ 130.00) but Edifil does not price this 241x105mm envelope with a printed corner card. This envelope additionally, has been uprated to the 2 ounce weight rate.
