ZANZIBAR 1896 SG4/5 Cover

Stock Code: P189016643

1896 (Apr) cover to Muscat, franked on reverse at 2a6p rate by 1895-96 1a plum and 1a6p, type 1 opt on India (each with normal second "z"), evidently posted on board ship and tied in transit by individual fine strikes of BOMBAY cds, dated "1 MY 96", with "MY 21" arrival cds alongside. Minor envelope bend mentioned for accuracy, but a fine and highly unusual usage, with the 1a + 1a6p make up of the standard letter rate probably indicating that the 2a6p value had already sold out (leading to the 11th May provisional issue SG 23/5).
