10-cent Inland Exchange part perforate on a June 1863 bill of lading for pottery to be carried on the ship Surprise to Hong Kong. Bills of Lading to overseas destinations are quite scarce. The document is on a thin and very delicate tissue paper. No wonder very few survived. Note the large-format embossed seal at right.
