Cayman Islands 1889 Jamaica 2d green used in Cayman Islands (SG Z3), cancelled violet double oval postmark "Grand Cayman/ Post Office/ Sep 26 1889". Perf toning. Fine and rare. Believed to be the earliest recorded example of any Cayman Is. postal marking. This Jamaica branch post office was opened in Georgetown. Grand Cayman sometime in 1889. Very few examples have survived, often mistakenly discarded as fiscal usages because of the violet ink used to apply the marking.
