The Royal Mail issues country definitives (originally: regional definitives) for the four countries in the United Kingdom showing local motives. The first definitives for Northern Ireland were issued in 1958.
The stamp for the international tariff was affixed by myself. For some reason the stamp has also been cancelled with pen strokes.
Inside the envelope the Belfast Post Office sent me back my letter and the envelope I used to send the request. On the back of the envelope there are two more datestamps of Belfast.
