A very attractive cover. [The Perth h/s is recorded between 19/9/1854 & 23/9/1858, this being a very early c.September 1854 usage. It is also a very early usage of the 4d stamp, which was issued on 1/8/1854. Dr Cecil Walkley had only one 4d solo franking, of March 1855: it sold for $2760] [The illustration is above Lot 255]
