1865 Trinidad - 1865 envelope to Bordeaux, France, franked with two 6d deep yellow green shade and a 4d purple cancelled by barred 1 numeral cancels. A TRINIDAD AU 23 1865 datestamp is on the front of the cover along with London Paid and Calais 13 SEP 65 transit cancels.  The stamps have blind perfs and so the sender cut them from the sheet, leaving most of the perforations in tact !! A most attractive cover.

1943 - 1943 air mail envelope to the USA with a three violet line POST OFFICE / MARITIME MAIL / POSTAGE PAID¯ handstamp and a tombstone FROM H. M. SHIP / PASSED BY CENSOR¯ with a manuscript date of 3/12/43. On the reverse is a yellow label P.C.5 / THIS COVER WAS OPEN WHEN IT REACHED THE CENSOR.¯ There are red initials at the foot. This is an extremely rare label, not recorded by Christopher Miller but similar to one he records used in Trinidad in 1944. That label though was green and the initials are different. There is speculation that this label could have been used in Bermuda. A very fine and extremely rare WWII censor censored item, believed unique.
