1881 registered cover to London with a G.B. 2½d and 2d (the 2½d paying the postage, the 2d for registration) tied by a barred ‘F87’ canceller. Smyrna JU 27 81 and Registered Smyrna JU 27 81 datestamps are on the front of the cover along with Registered London 7 JY 81 arrival cancels. A light vertical crease, well clear of the stamps at the right of the cover does not detract. A scarce early registered cover from Smyrna.
