Description: 1939 cover with 'Hands Across the Sea' & HMS Bounty 1789 cachets to Canal Zone with New Zealand Pictorials 2d Mt Cook tied 'PITCAIRN ISLAND/18AU39/NZ POSTAL AGENCY' cds, apparently held for some time before able to be forwarded as stamp also tied by 'PITCAIRN/ISLAND/23JAN1940/.../150 Years Anniversary' cachet in blue, Australian-type (?) 'OPENED BY/CENSOR' red-on-white label at left. [We have been unable to identify the censor label: the layout is similar to labels used at Perth but without the characteristic border ornaments or dots; overall it appears most like the Gilbert & Ellice Islands Little Type #L8 but with different font. Can anyone enlighten us?]
