1864 cover to England, endorsed at the left side ‘via Southampton’ with a 6d cancelled by the very rare TARAIRE 26 / 1 / 64 manuscript cancel. An Auckland FE 8 transit cancel is on the front of the cover, on the back are Russell JA 27 transit and Dudley AP 18 64 arrival cancels. The stamp has been cut into at the foot, but as this is possibly the only known cover to England with this manuscript cancel, it hardly detracts. A Holcombe certificate accompanies the cover.
