Here are my GB perfins. A couple are very nice, I think:











I also have many on KGVI definitives on piece, which I haven't gone through yet.

Thanks for the information on the SEEB perfin (which has similar reference to the SEEB overprint shown by Rod222).

South Eastern Electricity Board makes sense. In looking it up, I see they are now defunct since 1990, when the gas and electric companies were privatized.

As for the UDL perfin, I did some research and came upon this history of a legal firm by the name of "Urquhart-Dykes & Lord", who has been around for well over a century. Could this be the identity of the second perfin I posted? Does anyone know if that firm used perfins back in its day?

Urquhart-Dykes & Lord is a leading United Kingdom-based firm of Chartered Patent Attorneys, Registered Trade Mark Attorneys, European Patent Attorneys and European Trade Mark Attorneys. The firm has offices around the United Kingdom, in Cardiff, Leeds, London, Milton Keynes, Newcastle and Peterborough.

The firm was founded over one hundred years ago and from its beginnings in Leeds and London has grown organically and by acquisition to become one of the largest firms of specialist patent, trade mark and design attorneys in the United Kingdom. The firm is ranked in the top tier for both patent and trade mark practices in both the Legal 500 and Chambers Guide to The Legal Profession, with a number of our attorneys gaining special mention.

Thanks for the info. As to United Dairies, Ltd., is this Wiki reference for the same company, dating back to 1959 or before?


Quote:
United Dairies is a former U.K. company processing and supplying milk and dairy products. The company merged in 1959 with Cow & Gate to form the Unigate company. The dairying side of Unigate's business was sold in 2000 to Dairy Crest.

Can anyone identify any of mine?

I'm particularly curious about the one that just reads 'D.'

Here is a very holey stamp, 99 is what I count!

A 'Sutton & Sons' perfin on a British KEVII 4d.stamp. They were seed merchants and I have added a link to a small article for those interested in reading a bit more:

http://paperspast.natlib.govt.nz/cg...--1----0-all





This is a great thread with excellent scans and information being shared! I look forward to following along and joining in from time to time!

Nice one!

Have a Good One,

Skilo54

Hi jimjamtwo,

Your big "D" perfin is from a London deprtment store, either Debenham Ltd or Marshall & Snelgrove Ltd of Oxford St.

Debenhams bought Marshall & Snelgrove in 1919 but they kept trading under the old name for many years.

Nice Sutton & Sons perfin Skilo!

Suttons used to be based in Reading (about 20 miles from where I live) so it's nice to have the Reading parcel postmark on your one.

They moved to Torquay in 1976 and then again to Paignton in 1998 and are still going strong. Here's the history page from their web site:

http://www.suttons.co.uk/About+UsHistory.htm

There were two Sutton/&/Sons perfins with the following pin counts:

10,8,6,6,8,10/14/10,8,10,9 (your one with 99 holes) and an even "holier" one:

11,10,7,7,10,13/14/11,10,13,10 (with 116 holes).

They also had three perfins with lots of holes each with the pattern SUTTON/READING (two with 126 holes).

Thanks for the compliment and for the additional information NigelC, very interesting! That is really cool you live just down the way from them and they are still around. I can't imagine why on earth they would want to create a perfin with more holes as this one is fragile enough, but I would be definitely interested to see the holier examples! I would bet there aren't too many survivors.

I am fortunate to have a small selection of KEVII perfin stamps, and look forward to studying them at some point in my collecting career. Right now I am hung up on Downey HEads and Postmarks but I feel an urge coming on......


Here are some scans I have ready showing some examples of my King Edward VII perfin stamps:
