Description

Mandate Haifa postmarks/Discovery Item: 4 JA 1929 commercial cover to SWANSEA franked 7m per period surface rate to UK using Pictorals Ba95 tied by single strike of rare MOUNT CARMEL postmark - similar to GD-104/Sach-J27 but larger & predates their earliest date (3 MR 29); as Proud D1 - here used per his earliest date (first date). The Mount Carmel postal agency opened 3 Dec. 1928; it is possible this device was used prior to GD-104/J27; Proud casts doubt on their catalogued predeceding device, GD-103/J26. Slit open at top.
