Hello all

I keep seeing that there were "only 25" of the above—usually in auction catalogues. Bryan's air mail book suggests between 26 and 75. I would be interested to see how many members have.

As a start, I claim two.

I've duplicated this in the Tonga forum

Regards

David

Hmmm....only 23 flown.....puts a slightly different perspective on things, I suppose.

5 down "x" to go.

It's interesting to compare the number of views of this message on the Fiji bit of the Forum versus the Tonga one.

Just noticed that Steven Zirinsky has an identical cover to mine for sale for $150, so that's another to add to the list.

In the current Phoenix auction sale (7/2/2015) there is a group of first flight covers which includes one addressed to L.B. Lawton, c/o Lever Bros., Nukualofa, with 2 strikes of the Suva cds 20 OC 39. There are a couple of other nice items in the lot too. Lot no. 114, est AUD200.

Cheers,
John
