1871 small cover to Antigua with a strip of five (1d) blue tied by ‘bootheel’ ‘10’ cancels of ST. PETER. On the back are BARBADOS JY 26 71 dispatch and Antigua JY 28 71 arrival cancels. The 5d paid the 1d inland rate and the 4d the inter-island rate. A manuscript red ‘4d’ denoted that the inter-island rate had been prepaid. The backflap is missing but an extremely rare cover from St Peter to Antigua.
