Another letter addressed to Rivadeo, Spain, this time
bearing a pair of 25 céntimos de peseta postage
stamps. Another currency change had taken place as of
February 1, 1871. This time the currency had changed to
100 céntimos, equaled one peseta. Valuations were
now one half real plata fuerte, equaled 10 céntimos

1 real rate that had previously applied to single weight
mail addressed to Spain.
