South Africa Transvaal Wolmaransstad 1900 (19 JUL) censored cover (with 'LEASK' imprint on flap) to 'D. Eadie, Esqre, Act Resident Magistrate, Warrenton', franked by 1900 (24 June) 2d brown and green, type L3 overprint in blue, tied by black double-ring circular date stamp (with 'Z. A. R.' partly removed at foot), and endorsed 'censored/(initials ? G. R. M)' at lower left. Fine 'WARRENTON STATION/C.G.H.' arrival backstamp dated '24 JY 00', SG3.
Light cover fold but still very fine and fresh.
A splendid and very rare cover, being one of just 13 recorded covers with this provisional issue that travelled out of Wolmaransstad during the occupation and unique with the 2d value (of which only about 40 were issued - both colours) and with this otherwise unknown censor endorsement.
A very interesting and important piece of Boer War postal history.
Provenance: Illustrated on p.41 (no. 9) of the book by Birkhead and Groenewald.
