1950 1st airmail / PO's, rates & routes: 20-11-1952 Israeli airmail stationary printed matter cover from TEL AVIV to LONDON franked 80pr - 10pr short of the FA-3a period printed matter rate - and not taxed, but using bisected(!) 30pr frank (Ba33; this not approved practice by Israeli Post) and full tabbed 50pr (Ba35), tied by single strike of TEL AVIV-18 postmark; unsealed as per printed matter regulations. The total franking is technically 65Pr: although the cover is tied by an airmail etiquette, the franking would have been sufficient for the SU-3a period surface mail printed matter rate (40Pr) plus additional weight (20Pr), though no indication if transmitted by surface or by air (probably by air as no transit marks). Unusual handling, very fine.
