Category: PAPUA

Description: 1904 PPC ("Native of Cape Nelson") to England with BNG 1d only & very fine 'SAMARAI/BNG' cds, manuscript "T1d" in red & superb strike of the rare '5/CTMS/T' h/s applied in error, superb '1D/F.B./G.' h/s applied at London. [The generic tax handstamps are unlisted by Lee. They were issued to all major Queensland post offices - including Port Moresby & Samarai - for use on underpaid mail to foreign countries. Very few such markings, of which this may be the earliest, have been recorded from Papua. The clerk made two mistakes: 1) taxing the deficiency only d (5c) instead of 1d (10c); and 2) using the handstamp on mail to England]

Listed in: PICTURE POSTCARDS , Postage Dues , postmarks - instructional markings , Transport - ships & boats , PAPUA 1901-1942 The BNG & Papua Stamps Period
