Cuba 1863 - Sc Spain O5 - (EDIFIL Correo Oficial 6) on cover (no contents) from Ceiba Mocha to Matanzas. A Media Onza Spanish Official stamp of 1854 used in Cuba in 1863 on a nice cover from Ceiba Mocha to Matanzas. Addressed to Sr. Alcalde Mayor del Distrito Norte de Matanzas. Stamp cancelled with black Parrilla handstamp. CEIBA MOCHA - 15 SEP (18)63 - ISLA DE CUBA 20mm cds applied in black on front. This cds was lightly applied but it is completely readable. Oval double-rim handstamp of CAPITANIA DEL PARTIDO DE SEIBA MOCHA also on front. Backstamped on arrival at Matanzas. As you probably noticed, there are two different spellings for Ceiba Mocha on this cover. Not sure if back then both different spellings were used (like Yndias vs Indias or Ynterior vs Interior) or if the spelling with an "S" on the oval handstamp is simply a spelling error. Nice and scarce. This stamp on cover is priced by EDIFIL at 180,- (US$ 235.-)
