  • a superb strike of the Kalk Bay OCTAGONAL 7 handstamp.
  • Endorsed "Paid" and rated "4".
  • Exceptionally fresh, wonderfully attractive.
  • An exceedingly rare Octagonal strike.
  • For whatever reason the lower numbered Octagonals remain amongst the most elusive of the Cape pre-stamp markings.
