  • Thank you for the reply. The answer seem reasonable and logical. I did wonder if the early use of sulphur could have caused the burnlike marks but that was discontinued before my cover was sent I believe. Kebyf
  • The cover is very fragile but I will try to attach a scan. The date is not clear on the cover. it is certainly pre adhesive . The most readable strike is the Purife one. Also burnt in one corner is Roman numerals IV which is underlined. keby
  • Thanks a lot for your answer. This helps me dating the letter I have.

  • Dear Andre, I am new in "disinfected" mail, and probably it will not become my focus, even though I find it highly interesting. I am collecting thematic and would need for "Disinfection" a thematic piece related to it. I have now a "disinfected letter" which has been sent from Constantinopel to Gera (Saxony). It crossed Austria entering this rqyaume in Semlin, since it was cancelled with the cancel Type "K" )"Netto di fuora et "- space -" di dentro"). My question is now, when was this cancel used in Semlin? I could not find any information on this in the net.
    Thanks for your help
    • Dear Daniela,
      Dr. Meyer noted in his book "Deisinfected Mail" that the type K cachets were used from 1833 to 1841.
      Kind regards, André
  • Hi Andre, I need some help using the site. My first aim is to put up a letter with a cachet that is completely new, on a letter that has been through Aleksinac. How can I put photos onto the site, and where should they be placed to best elicit an answer?
    I have recently received a LV for a 4 frame exhibit, and am preparing a 5 frame exhibit for NZ next March.
    Cheers, John
