Cover with a 1 Anna pin-perforated, European paper



adressed to General Bir Shumsher (Prime Minister 1885-1901), Tansen palace, Palpa,
franked with a 1 Anna pin-perforated, milky blue on European paper (No 1b), setting 3,
the stamp shows the flaw “Large Dent” in the bottom margin - cliche 25 of the sheet.

This cover is illustrated in Singer’s book on page 54

It is the only cover I know with a pin-perforated stamp, European paper.
All other covers of the first issue I know bear imperforate stamps.

Does anybody know of another cover with a pin-perforated stamp, European paper?

Thank you, Johannes

There is another cover with a pin perforated one anna pictured on page 26 of  Hellrigl and Vignola's The Classic Stamps of Nepal   The cover is described as the earliest know Classic Nepalese cover of the first printing and was posted on  May 5, 1881 and belonged to Frank Vignola.  I assume that his son now has it.

Thank you Ed,

yes, you are right. I did not notice the pin perforated stamp on this cover. Somehow the rarity of used examples and covers is astounding.

Best wishes,
Johannes
