1863 Cover York to Lyon was created by jlfarah
I have a cover with markings that the references I have, mostly British, do show as receiver marks for France. I am including a picture of the front of the cover. In the back are receiving handstamps for Lyon and Marseilles.






Any help as to the markings and why Marseilles is a receiver mark ( port of entry???) would be greatly appreciated.

This looks rather odd and I wonder if some of the marks belong. It has gone through Calais as one would expect. There is a TPO entry mark on the front. The tax mark double lined 25 and the T in a triangle do not really make any sense.

Chris is quite right. There is a lot that does not make sense here.
The tax mark "T" in a triangle was introduced on 1 January 1876 for use on foreign mail and January 1884 for inland mail.. This therefore has all the hall marks of an original letter with additional stamps added to it. that do not belong
