1948 waived taxed late interim mail: 23 MY 1948 commercial cover from KARKUR to HAIFA franked 10m using now demonetized and invalid interim frank (Herzl Ba7) as of 23 May; this not initially accepted by local clerk who circled the frank and stamped the cover with reintroduced Mandate postmark (D3/Dorf-4) on blank field and marked the cover with "To Pay" boxed cachet - but this overruled and box cachet struck out (a possible favor by the manager), and mail accepted for delivery in spite of the postage dues markings; opened gently at back. Very late and highly unusual interim franked cover. Karkur received the Israeli trilingual postmark on 1 July. Very fine. Here a 3-postal period cover.
