Two 1940 philatelic ship covers

 These are always great additions to any collection because some of the lower values saw almost no commercial postal use.

140. 35 1/2 centavos for a true 35 centavos rate to Ecuador.

141. 45 centavos for what should have been a 35 centavos rate to the United States. The 1940 use of the rare 10c Brown clay of 1939 is worth noting.
