"10" centesimi rate marking at left which is equivalent to the 2b paid by the bisect, stamp has a full even margin at top and just along the frame at right, a file fold barely catches the very bottom tip of the stamp and is of no consequence, a fine and extremely rare cover; for the short period that the stamps of Romagna stamps were in use fractional portions of certain stamps were accepted to pay rates where the proper denomination was not available, either at the post office or to the sender, the 4b value was bisected to pay the 2b (10c) rate, very few covers have survived and bisect covers are not only of great rarity, but extremely popular; the cover offered here is an attractive and wonderful example of this very rare usage; signed A. D(iena), E(nzo) D(iena) and Raybaudi among others, also accompanied by clear 1980 Enzo Diena and 1986 Raybaudi certificates (Scott #5a; $28,500.00). (Image) €45,000
