The fee of 6d paid by 1892 ½d on 4d deep brown block of six (3x2, one with variety Small 'A') and two strips three, one strip with SURCHARGE DOUBLE (RED + BLACK), all tied by individual fine to very fine strikes of 'BARBADOS / PARCEL POST' cds. A couple of reinforced filing folds (away from stamps) still an extraordinary and wonderful survival. A superb exhibition piece, surely one of the finest commercial usages of the red and black surcharge possible.
