Currie, King Island (Tas.), I'd think. At the time, it had the King Island Scheelite mine operating nearby.

Next one: on a KGV head with a G/NSW perfin is the following:



It looks like it reads ORAMRA. There's a post office at ORAMA, but this does not seem to be the same place.

Does anyone know what it is?

Thanks for looking!

Looks like there should be a letter before the O to balance the circle, and the Rs don't match so one of them is probably not an R. Maybe Coramba?

Here's another one - a place, probably in South Australia - ending in 'ALPAS.'

Can anybody help?

Thanks, Al!

Here's a tidbit about the Malpas post office I found in a December 1922 newspaper:

Does anyone know which places these are?

The first looks to me like 'BALNANNAN' or 'BALNANNAH,' the second ends in 'RMEADE.'





These stamps came from a lot with mostly South Australian cancels, so there's a good chance these places are also in SA.

Thanks for looking!

Al, as seems usually to be the case, you're right!

Thanks a lot!

Now can anyone figure out the first one?

BTW, jimjamtwo, have you seen this site?

If you only have a partial name, you can use % as a wildcard. For example, searching for "%rmeade" in "Towns & Localities" returns Caldermeade.
