ca. 1905, cover adressed to Maharaja Chandra Chumsher

1⁄2 Anna black (No 23), setting 1-5

Typical pen-cancellation of the 1⁄2 Anna stamp.

The 1/2 Anna stamp was issued intended for use for the correspondence between
Kathmandu and the camps of the Maharajas in the South of Nepal (Terai).
Between 1899 and 1907 this stamp was used almost exclusively for this
determination. This postal rate was valid for letters and for postcards respectively.
