Japanese Occupation of Sarawak, Marudi Provisional Label, ca. 1944-45, 15¢, fresh; tiny pinhole, otherwise Very Fine, a superb specialist item.
Estimate HK$ 2,600 - 3,000

This incredibly rare item is detailed in "The Stamps and Postal History of Sarawak" by W.R. Forrester-Wood (1957) on pages 386-387. The label was used in the Baram area, where Civil Affairs Officer C.B. Murray produced his own "stamps" from the ruled pages of an old Treasury Account book. Size is appr 43x34mm, with the "stamps" being affixed to cover, initially by Murray and cancelled with the District Office "chop", and finally with a reconstituted pre-war Baram c.d.s. The stamps were recognized as unofficial, removed from the covers and replaced by the correct postage. Fortunately, notes Forrester-Wood, a few were kept and survived, as none are known to have survived on cover.
