I think it is an incoming cover to the camp while the Prince of Wales was in attendance.  Great find.  I have the better of the two covers sent from the camp and will post a scan as soon as I can get the cover out of my safe deposit box.

I have recently obtained a cover which I believe is associated with the 1876 British Royal Hunt in Nepal.  According to Dr. Hellrigl, the British Prince of Wales joined Prime Minister Jang Bahadur on a two week hunt from February 20 to March 5, 1876.  Only two covers each bearing Dr. Hellrigl's B75 duplex cancel are known from the camp.  Both are dated February 24.  My cover (shown below) was sent to the camp from Rajputana and has a first arrival camp postmark dated February 25.  Am I correct in assuming that this cover is genuine and a new discovery?  Any comments or opinions would be greatly appreciated.
 
Thanks, Ed Gosnell
