I picked this lot up at Chicagopex last year on the last day I was there whilst killing time. It was cheap and I like socked-on-the-nose cancels. It appears to be picked-over exhibit or album pages. Likely nothing of any value, but I like some of the cancels.

There's nice late usage of the "killer squared circle" on that 1/- block of 4. I don't remember seeing one used so late. Probably philatelic given the date, but nice all the same.

Bechuanaland
Cut out from an Stamp Album, or book.

The Tati Concessions 5/-

Complete Set of Six Rare Private Revenue Stamps of the Tati Concessions Company, Ldt Previously sold for 175 each! The Tati Concessions Limited had the mineral concession to the Tati District of NE Bechuanaland. Although highly unusual for the British Empire, the company was allowed to issue its own revenue stamps for use on its own prospecting permits, title deeds, and various other legal document resulting from the concession ... . Because the Tati District was part of the Protectorate, the Tati revenues are often collected with other Bechuanaland revenue stamps. Since the Tati revenue stamps were privately produced and not available at the post office, the Tati revenues were rarely used for postal purposes. (Peter Thy-Published in the 'Forerunners.' No. 45, p. 60-63, 2003)
