Tristan da Cunha fake cover?

 

In the Agryll Etkin philatelic auction at 29th September 2017 a Tristan da Cunha WW2 censored cover is offered (first bid £200).

At the time when the tombstone censor marking was applied (20th September 1940) the handstamp was already removed from the island by Rev. Wilde. Probably Harold Wilde used the Tristan handstamp onboard a warship on his way home.

Maybe it's a private used cancellation of the TdC type V cachet or a complete fake cover. But - this cover was never on Tristan da Cunha and the lot description is wrong: "A scarce commercial WW2 period censored Tristan da Cunha cover." It seems it's only a Tristan cover in a wider sense, nevertheless the cover belongs, if it's not a fake, to the Tristan da Cunha postal history.

Tristan da Cunha - change of registration labels

 

Perhaps you wondered about Tristan da Cunha registered mail in the past weeks? No Tristan R-label but instead a GB R-label? What happened?

The Postmistress of the Trista da Cunha Post Office Iris Green told that the ISO-code "TA" has gone to "SH". Until this matter is sorted they are using U.K. labels.
