Description
1948 waived taxed late interim mail: 23 MY 48 commercial cover ex KARKUR to HAIFA franked 10m using demonetized & invalid interim frank (Herzl Ba7) as of same day, so not accepted by local clerk who circled frank, stamped reintroduced Mandate pmk (D3/Dorf-4) on blank field & added Mandate "To Pay" boxed cachet - but this overruled and cachet struck out (possibly a favor by manager), and mail accepted for delivery; opened gently at back. Very late unusual interim franked cover representing 3 postal authorities. Karkur received the Israeli trilingual pmk on 1 July. Very fine. Est. value $250+
