1904 (1st Nov) Proving cover for the 12 bar "19" numeral obliterator for Donnybrook. Addressed to Tasmania with 2d yellow swan clearly tied by 12 bar "19" obliterator with neighbouring Donnybrook 3b index 2. Hobart arrival b/s. Concealed spike holes make a most attractive example. Pope & Reynolds list only 3 known proving covers from Donnybrook. This one makes the fourth. Extremely scarce & a desirable exhibition item.
