image Australian States: Tasmania, 1883 (May 29) Hobart, Tasmania to Hampden Me. Cover bearing Tasmania, 6d bright violet, tied by "Tasmania" barred oval duplexed with "Hobart, MY 29 '83" cds, Deficient Postage/Fine_____ handstamp with ms. "4/6 = 10d to pay" rating, endorsed "Via Brindisi", red crayon "2" credit; some soiling around stamp, small flaws, Fine.
