1931 cover to the U.S.A. endorsed 'Overland Mail' with a 3A cancelled BAGHDAD 9 FEB 31. A two line 'DAMAGED BY SEA / WATER' cachet has been applied to the front of the cover. No incident has been found that would account for the damage, so it is possible the cover may have been in a mail bag accidentally dropped in the harbour when loading or offloading.
