1894 2d ‘External’ post card to Ann Arbor, USA cancelled by a ZOMBA SP 25 94 ‘863’ duplex cancel. New York JAN 9 95 and Ann Arbor JAN 10 95 transit and arrival cancels are on the front of the card. On the back, which has a picture of crocodiles and a Christmas greeting written in Yao, one of the native languages, is a TSHINDI NO 12 94 transit cancel. Although the card has some light discolouration, a printed picture with a message in a native language is very rare. Transit time was 15½ weeks !!
