Corbitts Sell Sensational Franking on Telegram

Corbitts, situated in Newcastle, sold this sensational telegram for £1’150 plus commission. Sent from Leighlinbridge (Ireland) to Transvaal, it bears no fewer than 56 x 6d, 24 x 9 and 13 x 1s green & carmine, completely covering the reverse side of the form! Although it has some faults, it wasn’t surprising to see this smash the estimate of £650-850. The only dissapointing thing about it was that I wasn’t the winning bidder!
