INDIA 1899 SG88 Cover Rajah on Elephant postcard postage due

Stock Code: P201003511

1899 (2 MA) ppc ('Rajah on Elephant') used from Karad to Zurich, endorsed 'Via Brindisi' and franked at UPU postcard rate by 1882-90 1a brown-purple, tied by KARADH-CITY despatch cds, with Sea Post Office transit (MA 4) and Zurich arrival (17 III) cds alongside. Taxed on arrival in Switzerland as the sender had written a short greeting on the picture side of the postcard, rendering it liable to the UPU letter rate rather than the postcard rate, and assessed postage due at 30c. The deficiency paid by Swiss 10c and 20c red and olive-green dues, tied by individual Zurich cds, dated '18 III 99'. Minor corner creasing mentioned for accuracy, still a fine and very interesting usage.
