This one?



OK, not the best image, but its from the USA's Abstract Expressionist set.
Its a picture by Hans Hofmann. Which makes it a "Hans Stamp" - Handstamp = stamp canceller.
No, don't groan like that! I demand my prize!

OK, OK then, 5 seconds is yours,
but I must warn you, I am calling your husband
to have him change the hidey place of the sherry bottle.

Hans Stamp, really.... next you'll be saying there's also a Terence Stamp.

I've only just joined, so I missed this - but there's another answer - the New Republic handstamps from north west Natal between 1886 and 1888. Google image "nieuwe republiek"+stamp to see what they looked like.

Thanks Russ,
I don't think it is much really,
just the ability to find them on the hard disk.
They have all come from years of curiosity,
this one from a princely states web site, when I was trying
to understand Travancore.
Along came Tony Mac :) with whom we are very fortunate to get chapter
and verse from that knowledgeable gentleman.

Sadly, the result of the thread topic at the moment'
lies at two, we shall have to disqualify David's contribution,
I checked L&N williams, and the Natal was a rubber handstamp
and not a canceller from what I can gather.
But a good try! :)

Rodney, your cheque is in the mail ...

Jammu & Kashmir SG 86, the Jammu Seal Provisional:



(Image of Lot 191 from the 2004 H.R. Harmer 'Kashmir Blue' sale. It sold for 435. Another lot, with one of these on cover failed to sell, at an estimate of 1000.)

and a case of the obliterator in black cancelling itself in red.

This stamp is still very controversial. Frits Staal, in his book The Stamps of Jammu & Kashmir' (Collectors Club, New York, 1983) says he believes these are postal forgeries, 'made by or with the connivance of postal officials'. He gives four reasons for his belief, which I must say I find fairly compelling.

Thanks Tony, I am glad you explained it
