Siam Postal Card
October 20, 1894

This exotic postal card has two nice date stamps.
It was destined for a local delivery.

The card is printed on a bright yellow card stock.
The card is a 1 Att* of the 1883 issue.
The impression is derived from the 1883 stamp showing King Chulalongkorn.

* Thanks to Quokka999 (Paul) for this addition.
I note the following currency note from Scott:
32 Solot = 16 Atts = 4 Slk = 2 Fuang = 1 Salung.
Makes pence, shillings, and pounds almost simple! ;-)
