Category: FIJI - Postal History

Description: 1873 (Jan 21) complete editon of the 'Fiji Times' newspaper of 18 Jan 1873 with extremely rare franking of 'CR' 1d blue SG10 tied by 'GPO/LEVUKA-FIJI' cds, mailing wrapper discarded, some soiling but the stamp and postmark are both fine. A great rarity: David Alford recorded only four first issue Cakobau postal articles, this being a new discovery. [The very late usage of the unoverprinted 'CR' stamp raises the tantalising possiblity that this may be an Overprint Omitted error!]

Listed in: Postal History , FIJI , Newspapers
