1965 cover sent registered internally to Lobatsi with four 2c cancelled by the rare SEHITWA, BECH PROT. 12.II 65 datestamp. A boxed registration h/s with the number ‘151’ inserted by hand is at the upper left. On the back are Maun 13 II, Francistown 16 II and Lobatsi 17 II 65 transit and arrival cancels. This very small post office in the Maun district on Lake Ngami was open from 1958 to 1966. Proud mentions that this registration handstamp, supplied in 1961, had not been seen and so does not illustrate it. A very rare registered cover from this short lived post office.
