|... 6d (65a)|
In 1939 a new stamp was designed for express delivery featuring a Chrysler
Coupe - which was then in use in the major centres for delivering express
Of the 240 thousand copies of the stamp printed, over half
were printed for collectors after the service was cancelled in December
1941 due to wartime considerations. This explains why the stamp is rarer in
used than mint condition.
