ZANZIBAR 1931 SGD1, 11 Cover

Stock Code: P167006186

Postage Due. 1931 (Mar) incoming cover from Entebbe, Uganda, to "H. Allen, The Treasury, Zanzibar", underfranked by K.U.T. 1922-27 1c brown, tied by "10 MR 31" despatch cds, with hexagonal "T" tax mark and pencil "35 ctms" (= gold centimes) alongside. Zanzibar type D8 arrival backstamp of "MR 15 31", with the 21c deficiency paid on face by 1926-30 1c black/orange (R2/1 on sheet) and 20c black/orange (R4/2) postage dues, tied by individual very fine strikes of same cds, dated "MR 18 31". Philatelic, with minor blemishes, but a very rare and desirable usage with this combination of values (instead of a single 21c due). Ex Griffith-Jones (illustrated on p.327 of his book as Fig.12.5 ; census F.97).
