Landing Beach, Lundy" including several puffins in silhouette, real photo postcard from the Domino Series, photographed & printed by E. A. Sweetman & Son in Tunbridge Wells, mailed there 23AU32 (2-puffin Lundy stamp with flawed puffin stamp, fancy puffin cancel) to Miss Sally Smith in Appledore North Devonshire, clear & complete INSTOW cancel ties 1-d King stamp on back. Non-philatelic mail from a tourist who found the crossing 'very good, lovely & choppy'. The flaw on the stamp is a scrape with raised paper on the foot of the cancel puffin. Faint cancel ink in the front sky seems to line up with the stamp cancel -- faint LUNDY is very light but readable in what would have been the upper right corner of a larger rectangular cancel -- but is not easily explained. For example: if there had been an unnecessary second stamp that was removed, causing the scrape, then how did the ink so quickly soak through the unnecessary stamp? $15.00 lb-l
