The last one was given out to compensate Anna Charlotte Rocheteau. There's a French manuscript letter tipped onto upper left edge, to verify the Dutch text on the slavenbrief. Dutch slave-trade was abolished in 1814 and Dutch slavery in 1863. After 1863 slaves were kept under state supervision and were bound to their plantations for another 10 years as 'free' labourers.

67/2634 [Sports. Chess]. (Korchnoi, V.). Unused airplane ticket of VICTOR KORCHNOI, for the Aeroflot flight from Amsterdam to Moscow, dated "1 july '76".

= In 1976 Korchnoi flew to Amsterdam to play at the World Championship chess. "While Korchnoi's and Miles' shared victory was newsworthy itself, the real story of the tournament was Korchnoi's defection from the Soviet Union after the tournament's completion. During the award ceremony, Korchnoi asked his colleague and fellow co-winner Miles how to write "asylum" and then surrendered himself to the Dutch embassy the following day. In the wake of Korchnoi's action the Soviet Union responded publicly by boycotting any events in which Korchnoi was invited to take part. This would also add to the incredibly tense atmoshpere in the following two world championships in which Korchnoi would face the Soviet World Champion Anatoli Karpov. Though Korchnoi initially resided in The Netherlands after his defection, he eventually found a home and settled in Switzerland". (www.chessgames.net).
