1945. 1 cent black in block of 4 bearing magenta o/p, un-mounted mint. Same article in TMP refers.

Of these only SG 43 was accepted for postage and so canc. with a JB 'Crown' p/m but making the cover underpaid. A 'T' in triangle tax mark was therefore applied plus a fine Johore Bahru Unpaid (d/d 12.8.00) in black which Proud does not list. When the card reached Singapore it became fully paid,however, thanks to the 8c, so the 'T' mark was scratched out and the 8c cancelled by a Singapore cds d/d 13.8.1900. Cover was re-addressed in Holland and there are two Dutch b/s plus a Singapore transit timed 5 mins after the one on the front. A central crease but otherwise fine. The questions raised by this cover would keep Poirot busy!

PAHANG





310

1890. A Straits 3c blue p/s card used in Pekan on 24.12 1890. A 'Pahang/P.O.' cancels the stamp and there is a dated 'Pahang' p/m on the reverse together with a Singapore b/s dated 28.12.90. The card is addressed to a firm in London asking for their catalogue.

The top edge of the card from the centre to the r/h corner has been nibbled away but a commercial item from Pahang in 1890 must be rare to say the least.

£1000




311

1897. A cover bearing a l/h marginal copy of a 3c bisect, SG 18d, addressed to John Little & Co. in Singapore, cancelled by a fine example of an 'Ulu Pahang' p/m in red dated 16.8.97 with another strike at the foot. This puts it within the date of the shortageand the cover has every appearance of being commercial. There are b/s of KwalaKubudated 21.8.97, Klang 21.8.97 & Singapore 23.8.97. There is a marked crease running right across the envelope a cm up from the foot but, apart from that, is in v. good con.

£2000




312

1899. A cover bearing Pahang 1c, 5c & 10c, SG 11, 16 & 19, tied by two strikes of the 'Kuala Lipis, Pahang' cancel d/d 8.9.99 with another at the foot, to Australia. The stamps are also tied by a 'The Punjom Mining Company, Ltd.' cachet. Australia did not join the Imperial Penny Postage scheme until 1905 so the postage (16c) is correct @ 8c per ½ oz. There are b/s of KwalaKubu, 5.9.99, Klang 5.9.99, Penang 7.9.99 & Sydney 3.10.99. The cover was partially opened on the r/h side and at the foot leaving a very small closedtear.

313

1901. An FMS 5c p/s envelope franked with a Pahang 4c, SG 15, tied by a fine strike of 'Pekan.Pahang' dated 18.7.1901 and with an even better example of Pekan's registration cachet at the foot. The cover was re-addressed on arrival in UK resulting in two GB markson the front and another on the reverse, together with a Singapore transit of 22.7.1901. This is a rare example of the Imperial Penny Postage scheme and evidence Pahang used FMS stationery before the stamps.

£500




314

1942. An album page bearing a cover (from the Chartered Bank, Seremban) to UK franked with a Pahang 8c red tied by a Seremban cancel dated 4.1.42. This was only a week before Seremban was evacuated.

Eight album pages, the first of which bears a cover franked with an 1872 Straits 30c claret, SG 17, tied by a dumb cancel, and with a light Singapore Paid cds in red d/d 20.1.76 alongside. The reverse of the envelope bears the emblem of HMSThistle, a vessel which was closely involved in the events in Perak following the murder of the first British Resident, James Birch. The other 7 pages, which are fully illustrated by post cards, photographs, extracts from primary sources etc. tell the full story of the war which then ensued and of the people involved in it. There is even a photograph of the house to which the letter was addressed. The research shows, beyond reasonable doubtthat the cover was sent by a member of Thistle's crew who must have played a small part in the war. The envelope was roughly opened but has been neatly repaired but the colourof the blue envelope had faded in two places.

£150




316

Straits used in Perak. 21 Straits QV stamps with early Perak postmarks inc. Laroot (6 inc. SG 50x3 – cat £50 each, & 2c/8c, SG 54, cat. £130), a selection ofTaiping, Matang (2 fine dated strikes), a superb Kuala Kangsar, D'Sebatang (2) & Batang Gajah (4).

£50




318

Similar to last lot. A page showing the scarcer Perak marks on Straits, scarcer because the offices opened late, in some cases only a year or two before Perak stamps became valid overseas in 1899. The page consists 13 Straits stamps: Gopeng (2) TanjongMalim, the s/l boxed Janing (Proud D2), Kampar, Bagan Serai (2), Padang Rengas (2), Kamunting, Mambang Di-Awan, Papan & SungeiSiput. Also a page of 15 Straits stamps bearing black & red ovals & PAID marks all thought to be from Perak.

£50




319

Similar to last lot. Two Straits QV stamps bearing the rare Kinta cancel, one in red. The black is complete apart from the year which is faint, the red is not easy to see because it has been overstruck by a dumb cancel but cancel is all there except for the year.

£30




320

A piece bearing a pair of Straits 10c stamps cancel with 2 PAID cancels and a complete & rare Kuala Kangsar cds, Proud D1, valued x40, dated 18.7.88

£400




323

The sender's neat cachet 'District Magistrate, Lower Perak' (who obviously had no authorisation to frank) in purple at bottom left. Write-up on album page speculates on route cover may have taken. A rare example of a Perak internal cover which also showsa Straits stamp used in the state at the height of the stamp shortage. Must be rare.

£500




325

1900. An unusual post card sent by the Ipoh Club (to Cecil Wray in Batu Gajah) franked by a Straits QV 1c stamp tied by a light Ipoh cancel d/d 25.11.1900 & with a Batu Gajah arrival of the same day beside it. The card is an exact reproduction of the Perak p/s cards of the period but in blue ink and obviously produced locally. An article in TMP50/15 raisesthe possibility this was an official attempt to meet a current shortage of the 1c cards but where are the others? It is commercially used and shows a proper use of a Straits 1c stamp during the postal shortage.

£150




326

1894. Two album pages bearing examples of what is believed to be the only ppcs recording the famous incident which occurred on 17.9.1894 when an elephant charged a train on the Telok Anson line. The cards show the derailed train, a rear view of the last carriageand the dead elephant. There is also a photograph of the commemorative board recording the event. These cards are extremely scarce and a chance to buy all three is even scarcer.

£120




327

1893-1903. An album page containing 13 pieces and one stamp bearing the small 'squared-circle' cancels of Perak. The single stamp is used in Janing, &two of the pieces show almost full strikes of Kamunting and Simpang Railway Station, both very scarce, particularly the latter. Attractive.

£100




332

1907. Pangkor. A coloured pp/c (Chinese Temple, Penang) bearing a Straits 4c tied by a Lumutcds (Proud D3) d/d 12.3.07. Unfortunately only the 'T' of Lumut has struck. The card was actually sent from Pangkor as evidenced by the very fine example of Proud D3 of that office (same date) elsewhere on the card. A Penang transit and a London arrival are both on address side. Excellent con.

£100




333

A nice reg. Cachet bottom left. Would appear to be philatelic inorigin but is correctly franked and these o/pts are hardly known on cover.

£500

It is thought at the beginning of the war, German internees were held on St John's Island until Tanglin Barracks were ready. It is possible this cover arrived in Singapore around the time of the mutiny in February 1915. A rare & unusual item.

£1000

Singapore 'Mutiny' cover? A much-travelled cover bearing Straits KGV 4c tied E & O Hotel 16.1.15 addressed to Ipoh, re-addressed Batu Gajah, then again to the POW Camp in Singapore before doing another series of journeys during which it was opened 3 or 4 times, mostly by censors, and attracting marks such as the purple 'Passed/Commandant P. of W.',

two Singapore DLO dated10.2.15 & 27.4.15, 'Penang To Singapore' of 17.4.15, and an 'Inconnu/Not Known' probably of Singapore, amongst many others. The last was on 19 May 1915. The DLO of 10.2.15 suggests the reason for the length of time this cover was on themove was that it was in the DLO Singapore during the confusion following the Singapore Mutiny. The cover is addressed to a Catholic dignitary who was presumably on a round ofpastoral visits. An unusual & probably unique item.

£250




358

Singapore P. of W. cover. A small brown envelope p/marked Singapore 30.3.15 and addressed to Carl Held Esq., c/o Commandant Prisoners War, Tanglin Barracks.

A Singapore Censor label seals the bottom but cover was roughly torn open at right by the addressee. The stamp (presumably a Straits 3c) has been torn out but in such a way as to suggest it was done by the censor and not a stamp collector. There is a full write-up on the album page on which the cover is mounted. Cover looks a bit sorry for itself but may be unique in the story it tells.

£50
