Claude/10 Juin 67" double circle c.d.s. at left, Basse Terre transit on the reverse, red British packet entry transit and matching "PD" boxed handstamp that just ties the strip, backstamped Quimper, light cover creasing and small tear at right plus edge wear that very slightly affects the stamps, still a very fine and rare cover; Saint Claude has more than its share of unusual postmarks, this one puts an "e" on the "Ste." abbreviation incorrectly since the name is Saint without an "e" on the end; this must have been quickly corrected as this is one of the very few covers recorded with this spelling error.
