Unanswer of The Postal history Japanese stamp cancalled By DEI Makasser in 1936

THIS IS THE SAMPLE OF Dr Iwan E-Book In Cd Rom

THe Dutch East Indie History Collection

DURING DEI MANY FOREIGN COVER SEND  ON THE BOAT BUT WITHOUT THE PAQUEBOAT STAMPED(SHIP CHOPED0 WILL CANCELLATION BY THE DEI POST OFFICE AT TEH HARBOR ,LIKE SUMATRA IN ACEH OLEHLEH. WEST SUMATRA PADANG, BATAVIA,SURABAYA, AND MAKSAR.

I HAVE SEEN THE UNANSWER DISCUSION ON STAMPBOARD ABOUT JAPAN DEFINITIF STAMP IN 1935 WITH DEI MAKASAR CDS, MANY COLLECTORS THINK THIS IS THE JAPANESE OCCUPATION ERA,BUT THEY HAVE MADE MISTAKE BECAUSE DURING THAT TIME THE JAPAN HOMELAND STAMP ARE DIFFERENT AND THE LOCAL JAPANESE OCCUPATION WITH ANCHOR OVERPRINT ON DEI STAMPS

LET,S WE LOOK THE DISCUSSION FROM STAMPBOARD BELOW

Netherlands Indies Paquebot Cancels – which it obviously is not.

The cancel is Makasser, which was in the Netherlands Indies, but I can’t find the stamp in the SG listings for Netherlands Indies … it does look like a Japanese Occupation stamp, but I can’t figure out for where

It’s an ordinary Japanese stamp from 1932, Sakura #215.

 

The cancel looks typical Netherlands Indies for that period, but the year of 1936 is too early for Japanese Occupation?

So what is a Japanese stamp doing with a Makasser cancel?

Could it have been ships mail from Japan cancelled at the arrival port of Makasser?

And curse people who didn’t leave stuff like this on covers.

 

Three problems with that hypothesis:

1. the use of regular Japanese stamps in the parts of the Netherlands Indies under Navy control (which included Makassar) was quite rare.
2. the issue used stopped being distributed 5 years before the Japanese occupied the Netherland Indies
3. the cancel seems to be dated 1936, which predates the occupation by 6 years

So it seems a bit unlikely


It looks as though it is indeed a paquebot usage.

But if the cancellation is Dutch won’t it be 1936?

 

the date is something May 1936 at 18:00 hours.

This is a Japanaese stamp with a DEI cancel, effectively a paquebot, or item put ashore and cancelled there. The Ballpoint pen had not been invented so the postal official used a proper cancel.

Nice item
would be nicer on the entire cover
but never mind

 

similar cancels on DEI stamps using a 24 hour clock for times, so May 1936, 18:00 hours fits well, as does the dot type hatching.

Seems I’ve been convinced to follow the circle around from something I thought was not Paquebot, to that being the most likely explanation

DR Iwan Notes

THIS IS THE PAQUEBOT COVER FRAGMENT FROM JAPAN IN 1936, BECAUSE THE SHIP DIDNOT MADE CHOPED ON THE JAPAN STAMP, THE MAKASAR HABOR POSTMASTER GAVE THE CIRCULAR DATE STAMPED ON THE JAPANESE HOMELAND DEFINITIF STAMP,

THIS IS NOT THE JAPANESE OCCUPATION COVER FRAGMENt

I have the same collections from this city,surabaia,tandjong priok(Batavia), Padang,Olehleh aceh,belawan(medan)
