GB 1921 SG351,D4 Postage Due
Stock Code: P178013312
1921 Postage Due. Very fine PPC from Westward Ho bearing a ½d green cancelled by a Westward Ho/Devon cds. The current postcard rate was 1½d so a "2d/70" due handstamp of Bideford was applied denoting the deficiency. A previously used 2d agate postage due stamp was applied and cancelled at Manchester for AU.3.1921.
When a surcharge couldn't be collected the postman was required to complete an uncollected surcharge form. This was then exchanged for replacement postage due labels. This was often looked on as a chore, and if a label could be removed it could be reused on another surcharged item saving paperwork. Most unusual.
