1888 cover to England with a pair of 2d, correctly paying the 4d rate that came into effect on 1st October 1888, the stamps cancelled by a poor strike of barred oval ‘647’ obliterators with a KEI BRIDGE OC 30 88 datestamp alongside. King Williams Town OC 31, Cape Town NO 3 and Hammersmith NO 26 88 transit and arrival cancels are on the back. A very early usage of this newly introduced 4d rate.
