Ever considered why your Cayman Islands and Turks and Caicos islands farthing stamps are almost always mint, or mint hinged?
CTO Cancelling to Order, was not permitted in the colonies back then (any members have proof?)
Ergo, only dealers prepared covers may have had them.
Non philatelic covers bearing farthing stamps must be very rare.
Why is it then, the Turks and Caicos farthing used, is catalogued at half the price of mint?

I appreciate what you're saying. I meant postal equivalent rather than the exchange rate.
Postal Equivalent: One East African Cent was worth 1% of a Shilling = half the value of a farthing.
