Franked by a single 3d King George V Badge of the Colony stamp tied by crystal-clear "St. Helena/A/FE 26/40" c.d.s., the black boxed "T/20 [in manuscript] C" postage due handstamp on the reverse is a bit of a mystery—especially as the "due" postage was never assessed. The cover has seen contact with water, as both the ") N (" and vertical oval kan handstamps have run, but the cachet is as crisp as the day it was painted. Opened at left, the cover shows some minor edge wear, but a stunning piece nonetheless., Very Fine.
