ZANZIBAR 1931 SGD23 Cover

ZANZIBAR 1931 SGD23 Cover
Postage Due. 1931 (SP 10) incoming underpaid printed cover to "Ahmed Mossaid Bin Omar Baomer, ZANZIBAR", probably posted on a ship from India via Mombasa but with India 1926-33 1a chocolate pair disallowed and uncancelled, showing on face very fine MOMBASA transit (?) cds of "8 SE 31" and hexagonal "T/50 CENTIMES" due mark. On arrival in Zanzibar (backstamp "SP 9 31"), the deficiency was recalculated as 40 (gold centimes) and paid by 1930-33 25c black/rose postage due (first setting, R2/2), tied by "SP 10 31" type D8 cds. Small cover faults (vertical fold) but a rare and interesting usage, unusually showing P.O. register number in RED crayon (rather than blue). Ex Griffith-Jones (discussed on pp.302-3 of this book, with illustration Fig.11.21 ; census F.119).
