Purchased a box of covers and thought this had interest (no markings on back).

New discovery Postmark, for the database.

If any user has a scan of a postmark that is not shown in this database, a better scan of one that is already shown or a variation that they feel should be listed then we would be grateful for a copy and details so that the information presented here can be brought up to date. All scans can be credited to the person should this be required and requested at the time. To send details please use the email address allan.s.oliver1963@gmail.com

With a very abbreviated addressing, it may have been delivered to the "best guess", opened by mistake, and resealed, although that usually gets an additional note. Is there a street number under the OX seal?

3/9d seems a very expensive franking.
Perhaps held heavier items that broke away the cover during transit?
Air Mail stationery is flimsy at best.

rod222 - maybe I missed it, but what is the "database" of which you are referring?

I believe that the wording and cachet beneath the stamps on the left side are Holland America Line.
