1868 small cover to England with scarce franking of an exceptional 2d yellow-green SG 60 strip of 3 lightly cancelled with dumb cancels of Hobart, light strike of the 34mm GPO cds in red at lower-left partly overstruck with London arrival cds also in red, flap faults - that have been repaired with archival tape - in no way detract from the appeal of this charming cover.

1883 cover to Missouri "Via San Francisco" with 6d Platypus only tied by bold '61' of 'LATROBE' (cds alongside), 'SAN FRANCISCO CAL/STM SHIP' b/s & superb 'US CHARGE/TO COLLECT - 5 CENTS' h/s, Postage Due 1c brown x5 (one partly removed & another folded to the front of the cover) affixed to the reverse & cancelled with a segmented cork.
1902 linen-lined cover to "Bonavista/Newfoundland" with Pictorials 2½d just tied by Hobart cds 'ST JOHNS/NEWFD' b/s. Terrific destination.
1913 unstamped OHMS lettersheet from 'FENTONBURY' (cds smudged) with remarkable usage of Perf 12½ 'ONE PENNY' on 2d perf 'T' (typically poorly perforated) affixed in lieu of Postage Due and cancelled with 'HAMILTON' cds. [This is a very scarce stamp on cover, the ACSC price of $20 surely missing a zero! Perf 'T' it is a rarity]
