1852 LANGE KLOOF to Cape Town: Exceptional folded wrapper bearing superb strike of the exceedingly rare LANGE KLOOF OCTAGONAL 35 handstamp. Dated "6ᵗʰ May 1852" by recipient on inside. Addressed to "J Montigue, Colonial Office, Cape Town". The wrapper is endorsed "Paid" with rating "4". Undoubtedly one of the key Octagonal handstamps recorded in use at this very minor post office for a period of only 7 months between August 1851 and May 1852 (this example the last recorded date of use). Putzel (1987) comments "Very RARE if mail can be identified at all". A rarity for connoisseur.
