A Nice War of the Pacific Cover

In the aftermath of the War of the Pacific, no stamps were available, so postage on this letter was paid in cash. (FRANCO por falta de estampillas) The cover was sent from the Pacasmayo, Guadelope and Yonan Railroad to Callao in November 1884.

Note that this rail line was only 24 km long.

Another nice item from the Bill Welch collection.
