Description

Picture Postcard with KEVII 1/2d cancelled “GK & ARDRISHAIG PACKET / IONA” double ring c.d.s. (type GA14) with an inverted “8” for the code instead of a “B”, used on the afternoon return sailing of the steamer.  We have only recorded one other example of this inverted 8 code, on a piece.  This would appear to have been done deliberately, perhaps because the letter B had been mislaid.  Very unusual.
