ENVELOPES - STAMPED TO ORDER: 1911 window-envelope with 'CIVIL SERVICE STORES' imprint on the flap, QV 2d blue obliterated with black overprint - through which the 2d can be clearly seen - & Arms 1d red added, Sydney machine cancel of 3AU-1911, minor blemishes & a small part of the flap missing. A great rairty & the first example we have seen. [Until 30.4.1911, the intra-State rate was 1d, & 2d to Inter-State destinations. This was either printed with the 2d in error or was resubmitted by the user to be re-rated after 1.5.1911 from when the rate to all Australian & Empire destinations was reduced to 1d]
REGISTRATION ENVELOPES - OFFICIAL: 1891 stampless linen envelope with printed 'REVENUE REMITTANCE/ ...' address & instructions on the flap to the postmaster in accordance with which the mailbag seal 'POST OFFICE/[crown]/WALCHA' was impressed in wax to seal the flap but broken on opening, 'WALCHA/ NO28/1891/=NSW=' b/s, minor blemishes. A very rare item & the only example we have seen. [There would have been many thousands of these envelopes but almost certainly they were supposed to have been destroyed]
