A beautiful cover. The rate was 1/9d for air to France, then by train. The endorsement "Australia/Singapore" suggests that the sender expected the cover to be transferred to KNILM, although that would have occurred, if at all, at Batavia.

417 c image1937 (Dec 1) TS Beaumont & Son, Melbourne cover to Rhode Island, USA endorsed "Aust-Hong Kong-Frisco-Boston-RI Airmail" with NSW Sesquicentenary 3d blue and Kangaroos 5/- CofA Wmk (ACSC $350 on cover) tied Melbourne machine cancel apparently paying the 4/8d per ½oz airmail rate for carriage by QANTAS/Imperial Airways to Hong Kong via Singapore and then by PanAm Trans-Pacific Clipper service to San Francisco plus 7d surcharge for internal US airmail, 'VICTORIA/7DE/37/HONG KONG' transit b/s, a couple of minor repaired tears not affecting stamps. Prior to the commencement of the PanAm Hong Kong service in April 1937 there was no 'all-the-way' airmail service from Australia to the USA; mail could be accelerated either by being sent airmail to England, by ship across the Atlantic to New York plus US internal airmail, or by being sent airmail to Sydney, by ship across the Pacific to San Francisco plus US internal airmail. From 1934 the surcharge for internal US airmail was 7d per ½oz. According to Martin Walker, the PanAm Hong Kong service was open for Australian acceptances from 19.4.1937 at the 4/8d rate, and the mixed surface/airmail service was withdrawn. Perhaps our sender was not aware that the new rate included US airmail to destination, or perhaps the additional 7d remained payable for some time (?): more research required.

The rate was 1/9d + 1d Late Fee so underpaid 2d. With no superscription, the sender may have been seeking to take advantage of the 1/6d rate to England to be onforwarded to Europe for 1d extra + 1d late fee = 1/8d. Curious.
