'DEFICIENT POSTAGE' MARKINGS - HOBART: 1889 cover hopefully addressed to "Hardra GP Railway/Central Province/India" with Sideface 2d pair only tied by Hobart duplex & 'Deficient Postage ("2d")/Fine ("6d - 8d to pay")' h/s, Indian 'OVERLAND POSTAGE/DUE/AS/ 7 ' h/s on the face, re-addressed several times & endorsed "Not known" but this was crossed-through & boxed 'REFUSED' added.

'DEFICIENT POSTAGE' MARKINGS - HOBART: 1891 (April 10) usage of 1d Postal Card with BN '63' of 'NEW NORFOLK' (cds alongside), to Denmark with 'Deficient Postage ("4")/Fine ("4 - 8d to pay")' h/s of Hobart (b/s), 'FREDENSBORG' arrival cds on the face, minor blemishes. Excellent origin/destination item: the message in Danish. [There was no postcard rate to Denmark so the letter-rate of 9d should have applied. Thus the postage due was 8d, & the fine should have also been 8d, a total of 1/4d due on a postcard!]
