Stock Code: P167006185

Postage Due. 1931 (Jan) incoming upaid "Hollingsworth" cover from London with despatch machine cancel and additional cds of "8 JA 31", showing "3D/TO PAY/WC1" due mark and pencil "T30" (gold centimes), with type D8 "ZANZIBAR" arrival backstamp of "JA 26 31". The deficiency paid on face by 1926-30 12c black/green (R4/1 on sheet, exceptionally showing error "cent.s") in combination with 1930-33 6c black/yellow (second setting, R3/2) tied by very fine type D8 cds of "JA 27 31". The 12c sadly with small defect at foot, otherwise a clean and attractive cover. Philatelic, but a great rarity, being the unique usage on cover of the 12c R4/1 error, of which only six examples have been recorded in total. Ex Griffith-Jones (illustrated on p.329 of his book as Fig. 12.6, with discussion of the addressee on p.328; census F.72), and showing blue crayon register number "1073" at right.
