Franked with a single of the 1/2d light green King Edward VII profile head definitive, which shortpaid the postcard rate by 1/2d. The deficiency converted to 1c, which was then doubled and assessed by affixing a copy of J2. The GB stamp is tied by clear strike of an June 1, 1907 Highbury double circle CDS, and the J2 is tied by a lovely strike of July 8, 1907 Paris, ON CDS.
