The unique King Kong postmark cancelation is very difficult to view, since it usually blends in with the stamp image. This enlargement of the postmark
and Kong's image also shows a bit of the watermark that is on all stamps, faintly - mostly in the lower right. The large watermark contains an image of Kong, plus "KONG" in large letters along the bottom of each stamp and lettering, along the right edge of each stamp, reading from lower right to upper right, "THE 8TH WONDER OF THE WORLD".
