Auction: 19015 - The Philatelic Collectors' Series Sale
Covers and Cancellations
1889 (26 Nov.) envelope to Beckenham, Kent, bearing 4d. cancelled with a good strike of the type II datestamp, Beckenham arrival (24.12) c.d.s. on reverse, and 1890 (1 Apr.) envelope from Capt. M.F. Rimington of the 6th Inniskilling Dragoons to Wimbledon, bearing 1d. (4) and cancelled with two strikes of the type II datestamp, the reverse with Durban transit (2.4) and Wimbledon arrival (28.4) c.d.s. An interesting pair with, in both instances, the above covers do not bear the transit cancellation of Lower Tugela, Natal. This is evidence of increased mail out of Zululand and suggesting that the mail was now placed in bags which were made up and dispatched directly from Eshowe to Durban. Photo
