150th Anniversary of the First Fiscal Mobile Stamp of France ...

The stamp on the right of the cover was to commemorate the 150th anniversary of the first fiscal mobile stamp (similar to revenue or tax stamp) of France. It was designed by Carnet Cabasson based on the first fiscal mobile stamp, which was originally designed by Guillaume Alphonse Harang in 1860 (as below).

Many thanks Eric Contesse for this nice cover ;-)
