1899 ½d postal card to London with a ½d added tied by two superb strikes of the UMTAMVUNA MY 17 99 datestamps. A London JU 10 99 arrival cancel is on the front of the card, on the back is a Harding 17 MY 99 transit c.d.s . The mail went from Umtanvuma to Harding (14 miles) by runner. The village was actually called UMTAMVUMA, but the cancel has an 'N' for the last 'M'. Extremely fine and very uncommon.
