1877 cover to Wellington with a 1d tied by an 8 barred numeral ‘13’ of WAIHOLA with a very small part of the cancel on the back. It would have been carried on the S S Taranaki that departed Port Chalmers on 12 January, arriving in Auckland on 19 January 1877. From there it would have gone on to Wellington where an arrival cancel of 24 JA 77 has been overstamped by the Auckland datestamp. This 8 barred Waihola cancel is considered as being rare.
