Hello Ingo,

Ingo, I have dug around in my (not very well organized!) archive, I have found I what I believe is a photo of Fitchett's CS2 cachet (see the attached file). CS2 is the version with the berries randomly mixed within the green holly leaves. I do not own this cover, and this is the only photo of CS2 that I have seen in my 10+ years of tracking Christmas Island local sales.

Hi Andre!
Thank you for your answer. A very long time has passed so are my setting (February). In the meantime, I got some information. So there is an unfinished study - The Gilbert and Ellice Islands and its Philately - by Keith Fitchett. Here is the story of the Local Christmas Island Pacific is described. Unfortunately, Mr. Fitchett died before its completion. But I was able to get me a part of it. This will be done by this decorative cover 3 different. In total there are 4 decorative cover and a fake. Of the 3 decorative cover, I like you even no. 2 + 3. If you wish contact for information exchange it let me know please. ( Unfortunately, I do not know how in the Forum your email address here - come address. My I do not want to disclose here. Since each unreported in the forum person would then have insight. ) I am more to be learned not averse to new.
Hope you can understand my lines. Unfortunately, I can not speak English (translation program).

Many greetings Ingomar ( Ingo -shortened form- )

James, yes it could be the cachet CS2. Is to see something bad on the attached file. Now have a very, very big favor to ask: Could you directly to my address (email) send a scan as a jpeg? Here can zoom in. So the green holly leaves can take a closer look at it in order to better tell the difference. It would be very nice if have reference material (scan).

Hi Ingo,
I am always interested in new findings on Christmas Island. In a German forum I have already written a little about the local stamp issues. Here is a link:

I wish I could add something would be great. If your e-mail account from the Pacifica No. 205 (2013) is still current, we can also take direct contact.

Regards Andrè
