17 Dezember

Letter from an outer island and carried by the Messageries Maritimes steamer SS Lapérouse , with the correct rate 1 F 50 c for an ordinary letter up to 20g to USA.
Against all expectations the Sydney GPO registered the cover, fixing the registration R6 label SYDNEY B and tied the stamps by the cachet REGISTERED SYDNEY 23MR29.
So the letter was underpaid 1F 50c. (non colonial registration fee ). Backstamped SYDNEY 23MR29 , NEW YORK 5-1 1929 in transit and ELNORA MAY2 1929 in arrival. Uncommon postal history item ! ("SeSi" coll.)
