This is a Cape of Good Hope stamp that appears to have an overprint, perhaps 1/2d or something else, in red. I don't see this any Scott catalog, even looking at the logical countries that over printed CGH stamps. Could be I didn't think of all of them, but perhaps this is an SG stamp?

Thanks

re: Cape of Good Hope?

I would be guessing some sort of fiscal cancel.

Looks like a surcharge that was put on the stamp instead of the envelope. Image Not Found

re: Cape of Good Hope?

In school, we were generally taught, that Vasco de Gama reached and rounded the Cape of Good Hope. Thinking that he was off from there to the fabled Indies, the land of jewels and spices.
But there is a second cape about ffty or so miles to the east and ten or more miles further south to round, Cape Agulehas. (sp?)
At least that is what I think was taught and I believed until reading a book about the "SV Seaadler" a German WW I sail driven raider captained by Count Felix von Luckner on a great adventure.
