Two left to go but this is the first today. For anyone just connecting, I have been scanning the better cancellations in my Australian states prior to sorting and remounting. Mostly just because. They are being posted for your enjoyment and in the hope that someone may indicate which, if any are interesting or worth further study.

I have done NSW, QLD and SA already. And the Victoria, Balf, should be posted later today.

Enjoy.

I checked the missing postmarks of Tas,
none of yours qualify, so normal as I can see it.
I dont have a compendium for TAS so the numbers are unknown to me,
interesting to see Georgetown as two words.

I like Tasmanian stamps for some reason, yours are OK
You can flyspeck the windows on the 2d hobart issues
LHS near waterline, to indicate litho or line engraved.

Nothing to do on a dull day?

Everyone, I mean everyone has a Tasmanian stamp with
LAUNCESTON CDS.
They are as common as politicians.

Get you album out and have a look for one with the code letter "D"

There are only 4 known.

I am not saying they are worth anything, but they are scarce.

Update: "D" also scarce on HOBART CDSs as well.

This one has code letter "L"

I found a Hobart, but can't tell the Letter. I found another, but can't
tell the city. Penquin?

Thanks Partime,
some cancels were void of a code number,
so that explains your first, but "PENGUIN" is fascinating
it is missing something, I'll have to do a reconnoitre
around Google. ...Penguin Island perhaps?

The second has no code letter, just a device called a "fleuron"
The second is HOBART
Also, punctured "T" for official use.

That is a VERY interesting PENGUIN
there is a penguin PO, but the hammer seems to be unusual
in that it is off centre
Possibly a repair job, or a part time hammer
a keeper.

Rod,

Thanks so much for your continual research and updates. Its a keeper.
My daughter is on a walkabout in Broome for a school outing. I keep
reminding her to bring home some stamps...we'll see how she does.

Partime:
Query Solved.....was PENGUIN CREEK

"CREEK" was removed 31st October 1910

Now then, you either have a complete mystery (1901)
or the CDS slug has been inverted

To a dedicated Tasmanian collector, that may be a real head scratcher.



Oopsies, perhaps I read it wrong, creek was removed 2nd Jan 1901.

Partime,
we are not letting you off so lightly!

Back to the stamp please,
we havn't finished with you yet....this is Philately!

Please advise...Watermark? Lithography? Typography?

HINT:
Under the the "G" of PENGUIN, there is a factory building
IF the building has 3 rows of windows = litho
IF 2 rows =typography


What is the perforation?


Your 10c stamp may be worth 50 pounds.
you have to dig.

PS measure perfs on all sides,

This stamp comes with a differing perforation on just one side.
Also is the watermark upright, or sideways?
