TRANSVAAL RUSTENBURG 1900 Cover Boer War stampless
Stock Code: P190001355
1900 (Nov) stampless cover to Lourenco Marques, the face with very strikes of the rare 'FOUND IN RUSTENBG / BY BRITISH FORCES' and boxed 'STOPPED BY CENSOR' (with 'RETURN TO SENDER' removed) handstamps, and hexagonal 'T / CENTIMES' tax mark, completed with '25' in blue crayon. Backstamped at Pretoria (6 NOV) and Durban (NO 13). Routed via Durban as the railway line from Pretoria to Portuguese East Africa was partly controlled (in the eastern Transvaal) by Boer forces. Minor blemishes, but a very rare and interesting cover.
