A famous item, that oozes character. Carried per "Kaikoura", departed Wellington 7/2/1868; arrived Panama 5/3/1868; mails arrived Plymouth 28/3/1868. [While this might appear to be overpaid 1d for a ¼oz letter, the Swiss handstamp shows the weight as 8gr (= just over ¼oz) so the correct rate was 1/4d + 1/10d registration = 1/- plus an extra 5d per ¼oz x2 - see Ellott Vol 3 at page 20-47: note 'f' - which means that 3d & 6d stamps are missing (apparently from the upper-right).] Ex Woolfe & Benvie.
