1872 (17.1) Folded cover from Alexandria to London, franked with Great Britain 3d pair + 1d single, cancelled “B01”

1872 (17.1) Folded cover from Alexandria to London, franked with Great Britain 3d pair + 1d single, cancelled “B01”, and with circular datestamp ALEXANDRIA / JA 17. 72 tying 3d pair, reverse with London JA 25 72 arrival postmarks. The postal rate was 8d and thus 1d was deficient, together with a fine of 6d there was a fee of 7d more to be paid as indicated in manuscript, with cover also bearing “MORE TO PAY” and “INSUFFICIENTLY PREPAID” markings, an attractive and a very scarce usage of these instructional markings
