Cuba 1888 - EDIFIL 22 - Unused card
Scarce Type II-A, 2c green on buff Postal Card. This Type II-A card shows the "r" of "Sr" ending on a downward stroke or hook and the "S" of "Sr" aligned to the first "leg" of the "A" of "TARJETA". This card is, horizontally, about 3mm larger than the nominal 145 mm width and the trim guide can still be seen on the right margin of the card, where it was supposed to have been trimmed down. There is a small handstamp applied at the lower right corner on the backside, which appears to be the name of a previous owner in Berlin. Priced in the 2002 edition of the EDIFIL catalogue at € 84,- or around US $117.00 at the current rate of exchange.
