One of the highest-rated World War II airmail covers we have recorded, making this a wonderful item for the airmail enthusiast or the collector of KGVI issues. [NB: this cover does fit on a standard album page]

The Clipper rate to the USA was 4/8d for the first oz + 4/7d for each successive oz. Total postage of 4/2/4d = 988d. Postage for a letter weighing between 8 & 9oz was 4/8d + 4/7d x17 = 991d, indicating underpayment of 3d (or an unlikely overpayment of 4/4d). [NB: Kevin Nelson's entire packet wrapping to GB with Robes 10/- strip of 5 & 1 strip of 4 sold at the Prestige auction of 27.11.2010 for $7187]
