Article 41: Spain Red Baeza Postmarks on Prephilatelic Covers

Below is a neatly postmarked cover from Seville to Barcelona. I include highlights of the Baeza and the rate. Notice how the oils used in both of these markings have discolored the paper. This effect is very difficult to reproduce by forgers. The images here are thumnails to a detailed page dedicated to each cover. Here are quick links to the three covers described in this article: The first cover from Seville (Sevilla), and is postmarked in 1842 / The second cover from Barcelona, and is postmarked in 1844 / The third cover from Zaragoza, and is postmarked in 1845.
