Description

1948 Jerusalem interim stamp - used in TEL AVIV: rare locals III 5 mils stamp tied to mix franked cover with 5 mils Doar Ivri single, as 10m postage for inland letter, postmarked 25 Aug 1948 in TEL AVIV (return addressed Montefiore neighborhood) to local address; cut open at right. The 3rd locals stamp is rare on mail and any Jerusalem interim locals stamp actually used for postage outside the city much more so, especially at this late date when the Doar Ivri stamps were available nationwide - here accepted at the post office & not taxed as an invalid stamp (from an invalid city). 1st time usage seen by this cataloguer.
