Stock Code: P201007337
1888 (JU 23) registered cover from Cape Town to Italy, franked at 1s7d by 1871-76 4d dull blue, 1882-83 3d deep claret and 1884-90 6d bright mauve horizontal pair, tied by individual strikes of BONC '1', with Cape Town registered oval alongside, London registered oval (17 JY) and '2½' accountancy mark in red crayon below. Genoa arrival (19 7 88) backstamp. Filing folds at top and bottom barely detract from this very appealing three-colour franking, to a scarce destination.
