T2303
1892 (3rd November), stampless official ‘IN DIENST’ envelope addressed to Pretoria, bearing a NIJLSTROOM (3 Nov) single circle datestamp. With a superb ‘LANDDROST KANTOOR / [initials] / WATERBERG Z.A.R.’ fancy cogged oval cachet struck in violet at the lower left. The envelope was undelivered and received a superb small unframed straight-line ‘GEPUBLICEERD’ cachet struck in bright red. The reverse with a Pretoria (5 Nov) arrival backstamp and an ‘ONAFGEHAALDE BRIEVENKANTOOR / 22 MAR 93 / PRETORIA Z.A.R.' cachet struck in dull greenish blue (fine for this elusive mark). A few edge faults though a most attractive and colourful item of official mail.
