WESTERN AUSTRALIA - PERTH: 1939 (Sep 8) usage of KGVI 2d Envelope uprated with 4d Koala paying 3d foreign rate to Austria + 3d registration, first-type fancy label with small 'OPENED BY/CENSOR' (39x10mm) in "pink" (Little #L5-1a) tied by 'SOUTH PERTH/11SE39/WA' cds, largely superb strike of the boxed 'UNDELIVERABLE/RETURN TO SENDER' cachet in blue. A truly significant item, in superb condition.

Haynes & Pope state only four examples of the small label have been recorded. Little identifies a sub-type in "pink", of which only one example has been recorded. That is this item but Little mistakenly listed the date of posting rather than the date of censorship. That is also an issue with his ERD for the second-type label, which he lists as used from 8.8.1939. However, again that is the date of posting, the item being held for 3 weeks before being censored, censorship being instituted only from 1.9.1939.
