Description
1948 interim period taxed mail: local REHOVOT philatelically inspired cover franked by unsanctioned JNF labels (not ovpt'd by "Doar") tied by 7 strikes of local Minhelet Ha'am pmk, and taxed 20m (manuscript front/back) - twice the letter rate as if posted unfranked; paid on back using pair MH 10m Technion Ba14 franks tied by full strike of local MH pmk. Evaluated as commercial cover as processed correctly & tax paid. Of note, only the Rehovot PO received unoverprinted JNF labels directly from the local JNF office, though even if some of the frankings here are these, all were not accepted in this case: rare use of interim frankings as postage dues, est. value $1600+
