1880 envelope to Lanyon with a Queensland 3d tied by a SYDNEY JU 14 1880 duplex canceller. An oval LOOSE SHIP LETTER h/s is on the front of the cover along with a Lanyon JU 15 1880 arrival cancel. The cover has been taxed ā€˜2dā€™ with a handstamp applied. This cover must have been handed in to a ship in Brisbane and hence had the stamp cancelled when the ship docked in Sydney and entered the postal system there. A very scarce cover. Some faults at the top from opening.
