NEVIS 1889 SGF2, 6 Cover

Stock Code: P15615319

Postal Fiscal. 1889 cover to 'A. W. Mackenzie, 2 Gloucester Road, Brownswood Park, London N.', franked at 4d by 1882 Postal fiscal 1d rose x 2 (type F1 opt) and 1d lilac-mauve x2 (type F2 opt), tied on arrival (?) by 'LONDON E. C.' hooded cds x3, dated 'SP 18 89', with partial red 'LONDON N.' backstamp of same day. Some toning and light soiling but a very rare and remarkable usage, addressed to a well-known early collector of Nevis (whose collection was purchased by Avery). Obviously philatelic and contrived, with the possibility that it was not posted on Nevis, nevertheless an intriguing conversation piece, illustrated on p.114 (fig. 8.4) of the Borromeo and Freeland book, with RPS cert (1985) opining that it is 'Genuine' (although identifying one stamp incorrectly as 'F1').
