Papua 1927 PPC from Japan sent as Printed Matter with 2s stamp on the viewside, ‘THURSDAY ISLAND’ transit & ‘SAMARAI’ arrival cds, ‘MISSENT’ h/s & redirected to Cairns where 2d Postage Due affixed & cancelled with blue “X”, a little soiled. A bit of an enigma. [The card is addressed to Samarai so our vendor ascribed the Missent h/s to Thursday Island. However, we are of the view that it was an irregular redirection usage at Samarai as both the handstamp & the cds are inverted]
(Estimate 150 A$)
