REGISTRATION ENVELOPES: 1900 McCorquordale Ltd linen-lined formular issue (150x98mm) Pope #REF2 to New Jersey with scarce franking of Postal Fiscals 6d cancelled with 'R'-in-oval, oval 'REGISTERED/6DEC1900/ PERTH WA' d/s in violet at U/L, New York transit b/s of 1-17/1901, unusually fine for these rare items. [Brian Pope recorded six sizes as having been supplied, but noted only five examples across three of those sizes. Margaret Hamilton's three different sizes sold at the Macray Watson auction of 30.3.1999 for $3740, $3740 & $6050 respectively. The 2002 catalogue values of $1500 to $2000 only are therefore grossly understated]
