Postally VFU with 'Launceston MR 22 94' duplex pmk, endorsed 'Book Only' & signed by W Petterd, to Adelaide. (In November 1882 the new Stamp Duties act made both embossed & adhesive stamps valid for all purposes. This meant that in addition to the St George & Dragon, and small Platypus adhesive stamp duty issues, the large Platypus embossed Stamp Duty designs were also officially authorised for postal use, although that might not have been the plan of the postal authorities. Thus the Platypus embossed issues could be legally used on postal articles, and examples of the 1d, 2d & 6d values are known, with only several of each recorded used, although their creation & usage is somewhat shouded in mystery).

1905-18 cover with violet strike of cachet I 'TRISTAN DA CUNHA' weakly inked as usual, to England, sl rought opened. (Cover addressed to Mrs Gertrude Anderson, & according to earlier owner's research, was carried on the Norwegian ship 'Trio' which called at Tristan on 11 December 1917. It was sent by Agnes Glass on 26 Nov 1917 to Gertrude Anderson thanking her for a parcel she had sent to the island, & giving details about herself & the island, which was then then published by Mrs Anderson in 'The Times' on 1 January 1918. While that original letter is not present here, the lot contains a letter written by Mrs Anderson to J. Faulkner, apparently in response to 'The Times', relating to a philatelic enquiry about Tristan). SG C1 cat £4000. Very rare early cover. 2024 Ceremuga photo-cert. (P)
