(Papal States) 1869 registered cover to Bastia, Corsica bearing mixed issue franking of imperf 80c. single and a further pair of 80c. in a brighter shade together with a perforated 10c. tied by four lozenges, straight-line ASSICURATA handstamp, Roma cds, red framed PD, unframed CHARGE and French entry cds, reverse with framed registration, transit and arrival cancels. The reverse is a bit messy, light vertical filing crease running between two of the 80c. Very rare cover to a fine destination.
