Stock Code: P201006969

1883 Overseas mail. Fine pair of matching covers from the same correspondence to Sydney, New South Wales. The first prepaid by a 6d Grey Pl.18 (SG161), the second by a 6d on 6d Lilac Pl.18 (SG162) both tied by Peckham S.E. '67' duplexes for JA.12.1883 and FE.23.1883 respectively. Both covers bear octagonal boxed 'Advertised/Unclaimed' handstamps the earlier cover also shows a red 'Not known/by/Letter Carriers' boxed handstamp. Some cover soiling and a plethora of manuscript endorsements adorn both covers which include a new address in Pymont which was presumably successful. An unusual and interesting pair of covers.
