1916 censored cover to Windhuk with a South Africa Kings Head 6d tied by a straight line POST NEUHEUSIS and a manuscript 17/7/16. An oval Windhoek 18.7.16 converted train cancel also tied the stamp. An additional cancel is alongside dated 20.7.16. A red boxed bilingual censor cachet is at the left. This violet straight line POST NEUHEUSIS cancel is very rare on cover and was only used between July and September 1916. (Putzel 2 oc, 2000 points) Very fine.
