Stock Code: P167006055

Postage Due. 1929 (MY 1) unpaid local cover from CHAKICHAKI (on Pemba, despatch cds on reverse) to "Mr Albert Martins, Customs House, Zanzibar", showing on face obsolete boxed Indian "POSTAGE DUE" mark (retained on Pemba), charmingly completed "1as" in blue crayon (although "annas" had been replaced by "cents" in 1908), and fine "T in circle", with the double deficiency of 6c paid by 1926-30 3c black/orange x 2 (R2/1 and 2/2 on sheet), left uncancelled. Slight faults inclg cover creases but a most important and desirable usage, being the latest known cover with the stamps uncancelled, the unique instance of these Pemba due marks from this period, and the earliest use of the 3c value. Ex Griffith-Jones (illustrated and discussed twice, on pp. 141-2 with fig. 5.14 and on p. 293 - fig. 11.12; census D.49 and F.17) and Richard Knight (Spink March 2003, lot 1114).
