Interesting ten shilling Queen Victoria key-type stamp overprinted in red with “CONSULAR SERVICE” plus the value “10/-“. The face is largly obscured by the circular date stamp (CDS) which shows it’s use plus a patchy copy of the Royal Crest. Despite being on paper the perforations are in fairly poor condition, but the other aspetcs of the stamp beyond that are of more interest.
Circular date stamp (CDS): CONSULATE / (Royal Crest) / PORT ?
