UNPAID MAIL (HELD FOR PAYMENT): 1857 unstamped cover endorsed "per first steamer" & apparently carried per favor, Launceston arrival d/s of 9JU9/1857 & very fine strike of the rare 'NOT-STAMPED' h/s. The envelope was apparently opened & the sender in Melbourne (?) advised to forward the required postage. A Victorian Woodblock 6d was duly forwarded & affixed, being cancelled with BN '60' of Launceston where 'PRE-PAID/16JU16/1857' d/s applied & Hobart arrival d/s of the following day both on the face, light overall soiling & part of the flap missing. A remarkable inter-Colonial cover, the h/s stated to be one of only two examples recorded on cover: illustrated in "Handbook" Part II opp p131. Ex Purves & Askeland. [Unstamped letters were to be detained & advertised. If the postage was not paid within 7 days, the items were returned. That clearly did not happen in this case as the Victorian stamp was cancelled in Tasmania]
