    1860-66 6d Orange Beaded Oval used on 1860 (25 Oct) cover from Melbourne to Hong Kong tied by Barred numeral '1', endorsed 'pr "Behar" via Ceylon', and with Hong Kong arrival backstamp (DE 11 60). Light horizontal filing fold, small stain at top right on reverse, and small repaired tear at top, but of very fine appearance.
