  • October 1969 2 x 9d forces airmail rate from Kenya to Austria, franked with 2 x 1/2d and 8d turquoise Machin. These are nice, unusual usages.

Our estimate of the value of these covers based on the above factors is $20.  To understand how we have assessed these covers and arrived at this estimate and to gain a broader understanding of postal history collecting, I would suggest you read the article linked here. It should clarify the factors that make covers, and this one in particular scarce, and will help you to understand why we have estimated it at this amount.
