ITALIAN POSTAL SERVICE IN MONTEVIDEO

1873 Unfranked cover from Montevideo to Genova bearing special Coat-of-Arms „SERVIZIO POSTALE ITALIANO / MONTEVIDEO“ pmk in blue, although these covers were generally carried by G.B. Lavarello & C°, this one was carried by the ship „France“ operated by the „S.G.F.M.“ onto the port of Marseille, red LA PLATA/ MARSEILLE 20 NOV 73 despatch cds alongside, carried then overland as shown by the Train Post Office pmk on reverse AMBULANTE MODANE-TORINO 21 NOV 73, arrival then in Rome on 22 November 1873 where it was taxed by 10 decimes (one of the 1 Lira postage due stamps applied) but cancelled with ANNULLATO and further 1L postage stamp applied as cover was redirected to Florence, pair of 1867 20c blue also cancelled in Rome, these may have been applied in Uruguay for a possible carriage by the ship „Lavarello“, arrival in Florence on the 24 of November 1873, a few perf. faults not detracting from this exceptional cover of this postal service from Uruguay.
