Very many thanks to Fred Danes for examples of two new cancellations: Tau postal agency and Sabeto. Scans are attached.

The Tau PA piece is odd. It has 40c franking in stamps (Fiji inland postal rate) yet it appears to show part of a UK style postcode phosphor barcode. I wonder why that is?

40 cents is also the worldwide airmail postage rate for regular-size postcards, which is a great bargain. I suspect that, when they get round to reviewing overseas rates, this one will go up. I would mention that an aerogramme may be sent anywhere for 50 cents, but the use of these is virtually nil. When I wanted to buy some at the Suva GPO this year the clerk had to scratch around to find them and then could only produce 7 copies.

Cheers,
