Description: 1910 commercial insured double-rate cover endorsed "Wert 500 Mark - 625 Fr", to Germany with rare solo franking of 2mk blue tied by 'SIMPSONHAFEN' cds, Hong Kong transit & 'ASCHAFFENBURG 2' arrival b/s, sealed with 'KAISERLICHES BEZIRKSAMT' (= local administration) impressed in red wax, arrival rate notation in blue pencil. We have seen very few such covers from New Guinea. [The rate was 20pf postage + 20pf delivery fee + 110pf (36pf per 240mk x3 = 108pf), a total of 1mk50pf. Despite the overpayment, this is undoubtedly a commercial use]
