Scarce postage dues destination – Uruguay: 14 June 1960 postmarked air mailed real photograph postcard of Hebrew University, Rehovot with full page of handwriting, sent from Jerusalem to Montevideo. Franked 0.32L, tied by full strike of Jerusalem-1 (head post office) postmark; the postage rates however rose on 1 April and this postcard was accepted in Israel short-paid; the deficiency was noticed in Uruguay where the postcard was tied by a boxed taxe mark, charged 10 gold centimes postage dues tax for twice the deficient postage – a rarely seen taxe mark.
