1853 cover to Sydney with Laureates 2d & 6d (each with 3 margins & a little cut-into on the fourth side), poor smudged cancels and manuscript "Goulburn/7.1.53" on the reverse, largely fine strike of the rare 2-line 'REGISTERED/GOULBURN' h/s, Sydney arrival b/s, docketed at the left "Tooranna [?] 6 Jany", minor blemishes. A rare cover, being one of very few registered covers we have seen with a postmaster's manuscript in lieu of the datestamp (that was apparently still in Sydney to have the year altered from '52' to '53').
