VERY FINE. A REMARKABLE COVER WHICH IS BELIEVED TO BE UNIQUE AS A COMPLETE SET ON COVER USED DURING THE CAMPAIGN PERIOD AND TEN DAYS AFTER ISSUANCE.

An accurate understanding of the postal system in Cameroon at this time is needed to fully appreciate the rarity of this cover. Stamps were only allowed to be sold to local residents and members of the Expeditionary Force -- with limitations on quantities allowed to be purchased. Any requests from outside the Cameroons were not honored. Not only that, only postal clerks were permitted to affix stamps to outgoing mail. Hence why unused stamps are far more obtainable than used. Other than this cover, the Shilling values are only known on post-campaign philatelic covers. This cover, without a transit and/or arrival backstamp, is unlikely to have travelled through the mails.

With 1995 Holcombe certificate. Catalogued simply as used stamps. Scott $4,626.00. SG £4,000
