1915 black/pink parcel label with an extraordinary franking of Kangaroos Second Wmk 1/- deep dull green BW #31C single (small tear) & block of 4 + KGV 4d orange pair all tied by superb ovoid 'PARCEL POST/17MAY1915/ADELAIDE' datestamp, Cat $1250+ as singles (off-cover). The Second Wmk 1/- is not priced on cover. Simon Dunkerley Certificate (2008).

An amazing "cover". The 1/- is a scarce stamp that is very hard to find well centred & fine used. But this is also believed to be the only recorded used block of BW #31C.

1838 partly cross-written entire headed "Adelaide/April 29 1838" & signed "RLeake", to "John Leake Esqr/Rosedale/near Campbell Town/Van Diemans Land" & endorsed "pAntelope" (?), largely fine & above-average strike of the undated double-circle 'POST OFFICE/[lion & crown]/ADELAIDE' handstamp, landed at Launceston & endorsed "9" for inland postage. A very early inter-colonial letter.

Postal operations began on 10/4/1837. Very few pre-1840 letters survive in private hands, of which this is stated to be the earliest & eight months earlier than Harry Lower's entire to London with a very fine strike (that sold for $5060 at our auction of 12/5/2007). The sole postage rate was 1d regardless of destination or distance carried & this was paid to the ship's captain. Although Melbourne was founded 2 years earlier than Adelaide, this item pre-dates the earliest recorded Port Phillip District covers.

Robert Leake was one of two sons of the addressee John Leake who settled in South Australia. John Leake was a prominent settler in Van Diemen's Land where he established the Italianate villa "Rosedale".

[Far superior to the strike across the flap of Harry Lower's entire to Scotland that sold for $862 at our auction of 12/5/2007]
