VERY FINE APPEARANCE. A RARE VARIETY OF THE 1898 ONE-PENNY "CHEQUE STAMP" WITH NO CONTROL ON REVERSE.

In a monograph by Fred J. Melville, the author refers to the theft of a case of stamps containing several denominations that disappeared en route from England. The theft occurred about January 25, 1898, and it was claimed that the case was lost overboard. The stamps were eventually found about a year later. In response to this theft, on March 11 the Post Office issued a notice requiring that all mail addressed to places within the British Central Africa Protectorate be paid in cash rather than stamps, and that new stamps (called "tokens" in the notice) would be affixed to indicate payment. The new stamps were printed locally at Blantyre (now Malawi) which was a major center for colonial trade. A new supply of stamps was received in November and use of the local stamps was discontinued.
