international mail from the
Mr. Preston appears to have send underpaid letters to himself c/o of The Postmaster of various locations, in this case Jesselton.
The letter is stamped "T20" and franked with a 12 cents green and black N. Borneo postage due (British Protectorate overprinted) tied to the cover with a Jesselton North Borneo CDS, dated 22 Jun 1933, and signed with a pencil signature. Backstamps are Singapore K and Jesselton North Borneo, 21 Jun 1933.
My questions are:
Why the T20 and only 12 cents postage due affixed?
Why postage due at all and how was the fee collected when the cover is addressed c/o The Postmaster?
Are these covers from "Mr. R. B. Preston" known elsewhere?
Thank you -- any additional information is greatly appreciated.
