Letter from 1866


Hello,

I have a letter from the year 1866.
The letter was posted in Odessa and routed through Austria and Bavaria to Marseille in France.

My problem with this letter is the ringcancel PORTO.
In my Dobin catalogue for the pre-adhesive period (from 1993) it is listed with the number 14.2.15-8.04 for Taganrog.
At the first view on the map its astonishing, because - seen from Odessa - the town Taganrog is nearly in the opposit direction to Austria.

Can anybody explain the usage of this cancel and whether this letter was really routed over Taganrog ?

In the 2002 edition of the book there is a footnote "Postmarks 8.03 and 8.04 were included in the first edition of the book by mistake (see 57-1-01)."

Section 57-1-01 under Odessa illustrates a similar postmark (8.08) but without the stop (period) after PORTO. It is listed as 30 mm, period of use "18.." and rariety=6.
