    Dear André,


    Thank you for that quick and interesting answer. Thank you for the pictures to. I already take a look to KF Meyer book ... But find no answer. For the readers interested I submit a scan of the related article.

    I also scanned a letter coming from Odessa to Genova. From the same period of time. The letter shows this time the needed postal marks and the effects of two disinfection procedures:


    - The three vertical slits (two at the top, one at the bottom) and several heavy punch holes from a rastel. The pattern of the punch holes seems to be more regular.

    - But they are no disinfection cachet either disinfection officer number.


    Any information will be appreciated.


    Best regards,

    Goog evening dear members,

    I am looking for information related to entire letters from Marseille/France (both) to Odessa (Simoni).

    One is dated 8 november 1847 and the other is dated 21 septembre 1850.


    The letters are showing the effects of two disinfection procedures: three vertical slits (two at the bottom, one at the top) and several heavy punch holes from a rastel.

    There are no postal marks, no disinfection cachet either disinfection officer number.


    Any information will be appreciated.


    Best regards,


    Jean-Luc
