SARAWAK JAP OCC 1942 SGJ5, 11, 14 Cover
1942 (5 Oct) censored registered cover from Miri to Kuching, franked at 23c rate (8c postage + 15c registration) by 1942 (Oct) 3c green, 8c carmine and 12c orange, each with type 1 H/S in violet at foot of stamp, tied by two very fine strikes of the type JD1 MIRI double-ring (Kanji) cds, dated "17.10.5", with very fine type R7 violet registration cachet at upper left (ERD during the occupation) and black circular censor chop at left. Very fine "KUCHING" type D14 (pre-war) arrival backstamp of "12 OCT". A superb and highly desirable cover of great rarity, being the first cover with this short-lived and distinctive type JD1 cds that we have been able to offer in over 30 years. [This type was in use for less than a fortnight, and was the first Japanese cds introduced anywhere in Borneo. No similar cds was employed at any other office]
