(Postage Due) 1934 (23 Aug) unpaid cover from Majunga, Madagascar with despatch on front together with triangular framed ‘T’, manuscript “R” (in pencil) and “100” in red crayon. On reverse arrival cds with postage dues to value of 31c. (apparently rflecting a recaluculated deficinency of 50 gold centimes) applied, comprising 1926-30 9c black/orange certical strip of 3 (R3-5/1 on sheet, showing ‘cent.s’ error on central stamp) and 1930-33 2c. black/salmon horizontal pair (6th setting, 3rd printing, R2/1-2) tied by three strikes of Reg/ Zanzibar cds. Some creasing affecting some stamps, still a spectacular and desirable mixed issue franking, with rare commercial usage of 9c. error in a se-tenant mutiple, which is also the latest recorded date of this value.
