1878 envelope, locally addressed to Tweefontein with a bisected imperf. 6d deep blue on coarse soft white paper (Celliers printing, S.G. 70) neatly cancelled by a numeral ‘16’ in concentric circles with a MARABAS STAD 19 MA 75 (year date error) also on the front of the cover. The domestic 3d rate only came into effect in 1878, so this is clearly a year error, which is mentioned in the 1960 R.P.S. certificate. An extremely fine, rare and appealing cover. Jorgensen census No.90
