A fine 1d Star on an 1859 Irish cover – full description below.

A fine used 1d Star on a cover from Dublin to London. Cancelled by a rare ‘Trollope’ cancel for Kingstown (a suburb of Dublin) ‘KINGSTOWN/D/MY10/59‘. These experimental cancels were the brainchild of Victorian novelist Anthony Trollope – who was also an Inspector at the Post Office. It follows the Continental double ring style. The cover is backstamped with a DALKEY CDS ‘DALKEY/MY10/1859’ and has a small London receiver ‘MY-11/59’.
