Producer: Buckingham Covers

 

Amazing double postmarked cover celebrating the first passenger service of Eurostar's High Speed Rail Link in 2003. On the day the service opened, this cover was first postmarked in London, carried onboard that very first passenger train and postmarked again in Paris on the same day. Each bears a carried cachet. We believe it is unique. Only 550 exist worldwide. Very popular cover and highly recommended. This is one of our all-time best sellers and very rarely comes on the market today.
