1964 cover to the Standard Bank, Lobatsi, with a 1c cancelled by the rare PITSANI BECH PROT. 2 XII 64 datestamp. According to Proud this post office closed in April 1957 but reopened in June that year before closing again in 1966. He states that this canceller, used between February 1962 until the post office closed in 1966, had not been seen. A very fine example of this cancel on a cover that should have been taxed for a 1½c underpayment.
