365753 - Cuttack, down

This type can be found, reading upwards, from the same State. There is a double frame line. At the corners are set small diamond-shaped elements. This is a partial strike, but shows, location [Aska, Ganjam], date [30 December 1971], and the detail of a corner ornament. It is shown on an uprated postal stationery envelope that was used by a stamp collector on an enquiry to the Star Stamp Service of Delhi, which seems to have since sunk from view but has left us a very nice postal history item. Note the reversed image of a slogan postmark that was applied to the previous envelope in the stack. 

Reported also by Herr Ahlers from Koraput, reading downwards, no date.
