I don't know why i've purchased this letter. It's not strictly related to my collection and i've paid it quuite a lot...
Maybe a strange syndrome (let's call it this way)...
But nearly a record, 8 postmark for a letter (does anyone have more?)...

- Kamenetz Podolski, 20 september 1876 (On the stamp and on the back side)
- Kamenetz Podolski, 21 september 1876 (Why two postmarks?)
- Isakowa, 21 september 1876 (now Isakovtsy, Khmelnytskyi Oblast)
- Kozaczˇwka
- Mielnica 4/10 Ternopil Oblast
- Czernowitz 4/10
- Lemberg 4/10

I hope i have put the postmarks in the right order. It's not easy to find that little towns on maps...

Your cover is outstanding and definitely collectible! Congratulations on the find and compliments on your analysis. Now maybe we can move you to the East a little bit?:!!
