1875 (31st Jan) small mourning cover addressed to "The Prince of Wales, Palais Royal, Bruxelles". The then Prince of Wales was Albert, Edward, the first son of QV who later ascended to the throne as King of England (1901-1910). 3d rose, plate 16 (SG 144) tied by Lynn duplex No 485 which suggests it may have been sent from Sandringham Castle or nearby. However, there is no evidence as to the identity of the sender. A rare survivor of exhibition importance.
