"The King giving away his children"

The Vessantara Jataka is one of the most popular apadanas of Theravada Buddhism. The Vessantara Jataka tells the story of one of Gautama Buddha's past lives, about a compassionate prince, Vessantara, who gives away everything he owns, including his children, thereby displaying the virtue of perfect generosity. It is also known as the Great Birth Sermon.

Here is a horizontal pair of Br. India 1865 2A SG 62 canceled in Kolamba, Shri Lanka.
(from my friend Arvind Rangaswami)



The stamps were on a cover from India to SL, which escaped cancelation at the dispatch post office, most likely located in a port city of Tamizhnadu viz., Chennai or Tuttukkudi and eventually canceled on arrival in SL.

Incidentally, 4A was the basic seamail postage from India to SL per 14.18gm (˝oz), the rate in effect as follows.

Feb 1,1856–Jul 31,1865
by Br. packets

Aug 1,1865–Oct 1870
by Br./Fr. packets

During this period, 4A was the double rate i.e. for weight between 14.18gm (˝oz) and 28.35gm (1oz) if sent by Indian packets.

Oct 1870–May 1875
by Br. packets

May 1875–Jul 1878
by Fr. packets

My version:

Steiner page 16, modified and extended to include Scott listed perforation varieties. Obviously missing a few though.

Very nice 1850
Do we know why there were so many differing pin diameters
from the perforators ?

Without looking at my album, they all seem to be comb perforate,
(probably via the Grover)
I find it difficult to come up with a reasonable answer.

I have no issue with that, I find it a great way to know what issues
one is missing.
But difficult to solve.
One has to buy mint examples with perf identified, (expensive route)
or buy collections and hope for the best.

Rod - Thanks!

As for the differing perforations, I have no clue. Maybe they had to reuse older perforation tooling because of the shortage of metals during the war?

Everything on these pages was culled from purchased collections and lots, spending a good amount of time checking perfs on quantities of duplicates.

Yeah, the challenge will be to not only FIND the remaining perforation varieties, but find them being sold individually. I really don't like paying top prices for anything.

I would have a glassine front of album, with stamps, each representative of the differing perf guage, and written in pencil on the back.

Makes it easy to guage the duplicates,
You probably do the same, I employ that route with an early Aussie,
that has a half guage difference.

I did these some time ago. Gaps, and I see that I didn't finish the annotation. Got more muck on the scanner as well.
