TASMANIA 1899 SGCover

TASMANIA 1899 SGCover
1899 (AU 7) usage of 1½d brown postcard (Reply half) back from BUSHIRE, PERSIA to Hobart, the indicium cancelled by fine "BUSHIRE" squared circle of the Indian Post Office, with Colombo transit cds (AU 22 99) alongside. On reverse, a fascinating series of backstamps, comprising Colombo (JY 12), Tuticorin (13 JL) and Bushire (AU 2 99) from the incoming journey, and Launceston and Hobart (both SE 16) on return to Tasmania. The card with some corner faults, nevertheless an extraordinary usage, from the "Tattersall" correspondence, and a desirable rarity of Tasmania postal stationery. [N.B. According to UPU regulations the Bushire despatch cancel should have been applied alongside the indicium, rather than on it].
