Correctly rated for 4g Germany to USA by Pan Am via Lisbon, 40rpf/5g air fee + 25rpf/20g surface (see Beith p39). In the early months of the war, Sep 1939-cApril 40, mail from Germany, sent via Rome for carriage by Pan Am from Lisbon to north America, was usually uncensored and, if there was evidence of German censorship, it usually passed through Bermuda unopened.  A nice example of the German/British censor arrangements in the early part of the war, and of the much lower Pan Am rate. Also a nice collateral LATI item, being an airmail cover to the USA routed through Rome, but carried by Pan Am.
