1866 cover endorsed "Per SS Hero via/Torres Straits Batavia/& Marseilles", to Nottinghamshire with Perf 13 8d red-orange SG 167a (and a 2d stamp lost) tied by Sydney duplex of '66/JY31', fair 'WORKSOP/OC30/66' arrival b/s, repaired flap faults. A great rarity of maritime mail.

Hero was diverted from a Sydney-New Zealand service to succeed "Souchays" on the experimental Torres Strait service between Brisbane & Batavia, thence to Europe. Her first departure from Moreton Bay was scheduled for 4/8/1866. However, the propellor shaft seized & she had to be beached for repairs, finally departing 20/8/1866 & missing the French mailboat at Batavia. Colin Tabeart at pp367-8 states the only recorded cover endorsed for this service was dated at Sydney -/8/1866 with a Worksop arrival of OC21/66 indicating carriage from Sydney per P&O "Massilia", departed Alexandria 5/10/1866; arrived Southampton 20/10/1866.

The cover here - almost certainly from this same correspondence - arrived 9 days later . Our assessment is largely in line with Tabeart's reasoning: carried per "Hero" to Batavia, arriving 8/9/1866; then Dutch ship "Minister Franzen van den Putte" departed Batavia 15/9/1866, arrived Singapore 19/9/1866; then per French ship - probably in a closed bag - arriving Marseilles 28/10/1866. Colin Tabeart suggests carriage from Singapore per P&O but the extension dates from Galle do not conform to that theory. What is clear is that this is the first cover to be recorded per "Hero" via Torres Strait .

POSTAL CARDS: 1897 Scenic Issue printer's proof on very thin card with printed banner in red but no stamp & "KATOOMBA FALLS, NS WALES" in black on the reverse, a couple of very minor blemishes. Rare. Ex Dr Ed Druce and John Bell (NSW).

A group of 29 of these delightful essays came to light only in 1984, comprising six different designs in a range of colours, some with 'Stamp'-within-a-box printed on the address side. They were almost certainly prepared by William Gullick, the NSW Government Printer. All have minor abrasions on the address side where removed from a reference book.

1882 Second Sidefaces with Lined Background Perf 12 2d blue horizontal pair Imperforate Between SG 168a, indistinct Barred Numeral cancellation, undercatalogued at 3000. RPSofL Certificate (2007).

Ken Scudder at page 122 states "On at least one occasion, a vertical line of perforations was omitted, as pairs imperforate between are known". Both stamps are also imperforate at the top but this may be the result of trimmed perforations, although the upper margin is 1mm from the design.
