Stock Code: P212021090

Postage Due. 1945 (19 MR) incoming picture postcard ("MAGAMBA COUNTRY CLUB") from Lushoto, Tanganyika, to "Dick Seal Esq, at Zanzibar", underfranked at internal rate by KUT 1938(-54) 10c red-brown and orange, tied by despatch cds. The correct (empire) rate was 15c, and on arrival a 1936 Due 10c scarlet was applied and tied by type KD16 cds of "31 MR 45". The addressee could not be found, with blue crayon endorsement "Not Known", and the due charge was therefore cancelled with "CHARGES NOT PAID / (Cross)" black H/S, and worn "RETOUR" and "UNKNOWN / INCONNU" handstamps in same ink alongside. Very fine "RETURNED LETTER OFFICE / ZANZIBAR" cds of "20 MY 45" completes the markings. Choice quality and rare thus. Ex Griffith-Jones, discussed and illustrated (Fig. 13.13) on pp.352-3 of his book. Census G.38.
