Examples of Cancelled Items

P11. sent to Moss Vale, Australia, postmarked Jaluit 1 August 1901.
The postage is the domestic rate for postage to Germany and other German colonies. It is insufficient for postage to Australia, suggesting that the post card was a cancel-to-order item, which at a later point was given a fictitious address
