Notes: These covers were originally issued in 1968 to mark the 200th anniversary of Cook's voyage. I only have a few of these and the postmarks may well vary to shown. In SOME cases, in order to create these double dated covers, I have needed to cover up the orignal addresses with white labels. This is necessary in order to make room for the 2018 Cook stamp and postmark.
