BORDER RATE LETTER from Kolding 18 August 1869 to Meng By, Aller parish, east of Christiansfeld. 4 sk. 1864 crown-scepter-sword cancelled with numeral '36' alongside 'KOLDING 18/8'. The rural mail carrier writes on the back that the addressee is not known in Meng and return the letter, with his signature 'Ohlsen, Land Postbud'. Manuscript blue ink '21/8 retour' and stamped Prussian two-ring 'CHRISTIANSFELD 21/8 69 8-9V' and reception mark Kolding 21/8. Rural fee '2/1' red crayon. A very rare example of a returned border rate letter.
