ANTARCTIC 1913 (Jan 18)


SKU: L47875 Category:


Long cover (surface faults) with ‘BRITISH ARTARCTIC EXPEDITION / TERRA NOVA R.Y.S.” printed on the flap, addressed to Wellington franked by Victoria Land 1/2d and 1d tied by “BRIT. ANTARCTIC EXPD.” c.d.s., backstopped at Lyttleton (Feb 12).  A rare use of both value stamps, the scarce 1/2d stamp is usually found cancelled to order, very few examples being genuinely used on mail actually sent through the post.
