SUDAN / BELGIAN CONGO – THE LADO ENCLAVE 1907

£2,250.00

Belgian Congo 10c postal stationery Post Card to Brussells, written at “Ye” (Yei) in the Enclave on July 20th, transported eastwards to Lado where it received a manuscript cancel “Lado 1.8.07”, unusually with a signature, all in black ink. The card further cancelled by retta of dots in black, with White Nile T.P. datestamp at left and Bruxelles arrival datestamp also on face. Mr. A.G. Gudenkauf states that only three different full signatures are recorded in Lado manuscript cancels as opposed to the usual initials. He illustrates an example of the same signature on page 108 of his book “Postal History of the Lado Enclave 1897-1910”. Examinations of these two examples of this signature would indicate that the name is “Duvory”. A fine and interesting Lado Enclave item.
