Description

Super rare lot ex USA estate, Museum / Archive quality !!! All are addressed to the same person, John C Sims, Esquire, C/O Hottinger & Co, Bankers, Paris, France. I’ve only gleamed a few letters & noticed they were from his mother, in saying that there could be letters from other people. The ones I saw were written in a very good hand and are very legible and interesting. Most envelopes are missing the stamps & are slightly tatty with minor marks & tears, some are noted as “Sent by Steamer” with a lot having a Philadelphia cancel. Also noted is that some have been readdressed to Lucerne, Switzerland just prior to the September 1870 seige of Paris, Franco-Prussian War. All envelopes have a letter enclosed but there are 2 extra empty envelopes not included in the 50. A fascinating lot !!
