Victoria 1855 Datestamp Deterioration Euroa / Victoria

£275.00

Cover and three part letters all sent from Melbourne to Euroa franked 6d, the three part fronts with the arrival backstamp “EUROA / VICTORIA” showing how the datestamp deteriorated between January and March until it was almost unreadable on March 7th. By the time the cover was received on March 10th the postmaster had given up using his datestamp instead writing “Euroa / Mar 10.55” in ink on the reverse of the cover upon arrival. A most unusual group.
