Cape of Good Hope

1905 picture post card with a ½d cancelled SWELLENDAM DE 30 05. An arrival strike of the rare MODDERFONTEIN C.W. JA 1 06 is on the card. This cancel, although illustrated in Putzels’ book on the Postmarks of South Africa is not listed by Franco Frescura. The C.W. is to indicate the district that this Modderfontein village falls under, and appears to be the only Cape cancellation that has this. A good strike of a rare cancellation.
