11-11-1949 RED Jerusalem Head Post Office postmark on local mail

RED JERUSALEM Head Post Office postmark dated 11-11-1949 tied to local cover, unsealed. This is not the red "Paye" mark, evidenced by "bet" index letter & dateline spacing. Israeli postmarks in red ink are very rare. As unsealed & postmark in red, possibly a clerical error of using a regular postmark instead of the red "pre-paid" postmark on printed matter(?) cover.
