Description: TYPE 2 (DUPLEX): Part b/s of AU18/94 unusually on 3d Registration Envelope to a member of the Bombay Philatelic Society, uprated with 2d red/yellow tied by 'R'-in-circle h/s apparently used aboard the TPO endorsed "Officially" above the printed 'REGISTERED' as it was seemingly placed aboard the train en route to Adelaide. Incorrectly struck with the 'T '-in-oval h/s for use on domestic mail; this has been crossed-out & 'T/25c'-in-octagon h/s applied, mounting stains at the corners. Ex Trevor Davis and George Bowman who acquired it at the Prestige auction of 12.5.2007 for $632.

It is generally accepted that Victorian TPOs were not equipped with instructional handstamps - but see Lot 281238 - & that they had no registration facilities. This cover provides strong evidence that at least the English Mail TPO had a complement of instructional handstamps, & the capacity to handle registered mail.
