VICTORIA - Instructional/Functional Postal Markings:
MORE TO PAY: '("2/6)/MORE TO PAY'-in-Oval very fine strike on 1871 (Oct 6) stampless cover from 'BRUNECK' (Austrian-type "thimble" cds) endorsed "Via Brindisi" with transit backstamps of 'VILLACH/8/10' & 'TRIEST/9/10/71' but then sent west overland to France with 'LYON/12/OCT/71', 'LYON A MARSEILLE/ 13/OCT/71' & 'MARSEILLE' b/s, superb strike of the unusual septagonal(!) Anglo-French Postal Convention 'FR./2f96c' postage payable h/s, Melbourne transit & Bairnsdale arrival backstamps, minor defects. An extraordinary cover, there being only one other inwards item recorded bearing any of the Anglo-French handstamps.Bruneck is a medieval town in the Southern Tyrol. It is today the Italian town of Brunico, but 80% of the population still speak German! The routing via France suggests that the cover was mis-directed from Trieste, adding as much as a week to the transit time.
1902 Chinese PPC ("Chefoo Innerhafen") to Germany with Austrian 5h tied by 34mm Austrian Navy 'K.u.K KRIEGS.../SMS/KAISERIN U KONIG/MARIA THERESE' cds, 'WUERZBURG 2' arrival cds & '48'-in-circle postmans' handstamp, some faint spotting.
1940-41 airmail covers to the United States (which was still neutral) from Jewish residents of Vienna (mostly) or Berlin, a couple with sender's name including "Israel" or "Sar(ah)" on the flap as required by the Nazis, various censor tapes & cachets, a few faults. (Qty 12)
