Reply half sent registered from Deventer, Netherlands back to Lome, registry label at bottom left, card uprated with Gold Coast 2p with Accra Overprint, uncancelled but paying proper registered rate, London transit also ties registry label, "R" in oval handstamp, clear "Lome, Togo 31.12.15" circular datestamp and violet censor marking upon arrival, message on reverse

VERY FINE. THIS IS THE ONLY RECORDED POSTALLY USED EXAMPLE OF EITHER PART OF THE POSTAL REPLY CARD. A KEY ITEM FOR ANY TOGO OR POSTAL STATIONERY COLLECTOR LOOKING TO BUILD A WORLD-CLASS EXHIBIT.

Most known examples of the Togo overprinted German Yacht stationery are used with C.T.O. cancels and never saw actual postal use. This example, a reply side card from the Netherlands, is truly remarkable. Gibbs states this is the only example known to him.

With 1996 Holcombe certificate (Image)
