    Talking Postal Orders of the British Commonwealth - Orange Free State.

    Here's the photos of a couple of Orange Free State 1 Pond postal notes dated 1898 & 1899.

    Although they have been cashed,they are very rare.

    The Pick Specialised catalogue's prices are ridiculously low.The same applies to the South African Republic's postal notes as well.

    The one dated 1898 came to me from England for 10 Pounds Sterling,plus 10% commission.

    The one dated 1899 came from a dealer here in New Zealand for NZ$25.

    Either way,they were absolute bargains.

    Have a read here; Postal Orders of the Orange Free State - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia .

    Please let me know what you think.

    Aidan.

    Greg,
    The 1 Pond postal notes are extremely rare.It is very surprising that I have got 2 of them.

    I actually got into collecting postal orders in late 2004 through buying some Orange Free State 1/- & 5/- ones as banknotes,considering that they are listed in the Pick Specialised catalogue.I still have them in my collection.

    The cashed postal notes were found when British soldiers captured quite a few post offices during the Second Boer War (1899-1902).

    Still,it doesn't change that the catalogue prices are ridiculous though.

    Aidan.
