Cape of Good Hope 1897 Soldiers Letter, 1d Rate


1897 SOLDIER'S LETTER preprinted regimental stationery envelope in the required format with senders details filled in, from No "8179 Pte J Hackman 2nd Batt. King's Rl Rifles." From Cape Town (?) (squared circle) to England (arrival DE 20), franked 1d Hope Standing. With imperfections and an overall patina of soiling commensurate with being "carried in pocket" either by sender or recipient. A nonetheless pleasing example of the PENNY CONCESSIONARY RATE, the cover bearing required endorsements and Officer's countersignature for the military rate. Scarce.
