Another 5-franc Three Towers official sole franking




On December 13, 2008, I posted a registered COD cover to Belgium with the 5-franc Three Towers official nicely (and exactly) paying the postage and fees. 

Recently, I was pleased to find the 5-franc Three Towers stamp overprinted officiel used as a convenience sole franking paying the 4.20-franc postage and special delivery [EXPRÈS] fee on a cover from the Luxembourg Commissariat Général for the Grande Saison Internationale de l’Eau à Liége en 1939.  Sent from Luxembourg-Ville to the Commissaire Général adjoint de l'Exposition de l'Eau in Liege, Belgium, March 11, 1940 (11:00-12:00 a.m.), the cover was received at Liége, 8:0o-9:00 p.m. later that day for special delivery to the addressee.
