ZANZIBAR 1935 SGD21, 24 Cover

Stock Code: P178000083

Postage Due. 1935 (Apr) incoming unpaid cover from Aden (addressed on face in Arabic but with "Zangepar" in English) with "T in circle" tax mark on face. Postage should have been 2a6p, therefore incurring double deficiency of 5a (= 50 gold centimes). On reverse, "ADEN CAMP" despatch cds, type KD13 Zanzibar arrival cds (18 AP), with 1930-33 6c black/yellow and 25c black/lilac postage dues applied to pay 31c deficiency, tied by type R7 "REG./ZANZIBAR" cds. Cover faults and the due stamps with unobtrusive defects, nevertheless a good commercial usage and one of only three recorded from Aden, despite the extensive contacts between Arabia and Zanzibar. Ex Griffith-Jones, discussed and illustrated (Fig. 11.32) on p.313 of his book. Census F.236. The 25c black/lilac is rare on cover, with only 12 examples recorded thus.
