1891 cover to England with DLR d green & 2d grey x3 tied by 12-bar '1' with Reversed Top Serif, light oval 'REGISTERED/2AP91/PERTH WA' d/s overstruck with London arrival d/s in red, London transit & 'BATH/MY5/91' arrival b/s, minor toning. Pope & Reynolds Census #3. An important cover: the rate to GB was reduced to 2d on 1/1/1891 but this cover shows that the registration fee was not reduced from 4d to 3d at the same date, as was once believed. Ex Dr Cecil Walkley: acquired for $575. [See "Black Swan" (March 1991)]

[The WASG "Handbook" states at p176 "Several are known, but none have been tied to an office". NB: Guildford obviously hadn't been supplied with a '01' year slug, so contrived '1901' from the year slug '00' & day slug '1']

1902-06 Text in Red Size G 3d bright red-brown Knife 2 but with the lower flap cut at 60 degree angle RE2, to Germany with 2d tied by 'R'-in-oval h/s, rubber oval 'REGISTERED BRANCH/30AUG02/KALGOORLIE, W.A.' d/s, Perth transit b/s of 1SEP1902 & 'MAGDEBURG' arrival b/s. Sub-type unlisted in the PSAC. A highly desirable item, being the earliest recorded usage of any WA stamped Registration Envelope. This item is symptomatic of the problems with the PSAC listing. RE1.1 - red text, brown stamp, Knife 2 - was printed only in 1906. However, on the face of it, this item is RE1.1, used four years before it was printed!! Not only has the knife not been properly identified, the PSAC's ERU for RE1 - Knife 1 - of 30/8/1902, surely refers to this item, which is definitely not RE1.
