I'm not sure if this is an interesting find or not: Washington 1950 cds on two Siam stamps that just happened to go together when found in an assorted lot of over 1,000 stamps.



Does anyone know how this could happen? Does it indicate, perhaps, that the stamps originated from a diplomatic cover?

I'm perplexed by this.

Some years ago,
on a text driven newsgroup with litte access to images,
we were confronted with this query,
What was this weird pmk on a German stamp?



It took a group of us weeks then, to track down the culprit,
(or assumed route it would have taken to get this pmk)
A letter had been sent from Germany to Scotland
and the stamp possibly had not been cancelled in Germany
so the clerk in the Scot village decided to cancel it,

He used a a machine invented by Rowland Hill's brother
called a "parallel motion cancelling machine"
with an impression of a Scot "Brunswick Star"

I'd suggest the same thing may have happened to yours
of Siam, just an over ambitious postal clerk?

2 Baht in 1950 was a very expensive franking.

That Scottish cancel on a German stamp is truly amazing.

It must have taken some real detective work to establish that.

Nice cancel too!

It did JimJam, there were some really knowledgeable people
on that newsgroup, and by one of those quirks of fate,
I found an image of the Brunswick star, quite by accident
whilst browsing a Stanley Gibbons Encyclopedia.
