Wooow...impressive. If all these will be solved here, the database started here will have huge referencial value!

look forward to studying them at some point in my collecting career

Skilo, if you get to that point it might result in some nice exhibition pages. Very nice material

Sorry but I just can't help myself as these are my personal favorite. The stamps, the postmarks, the perfins... doesn't get any better if you ask me!

gb C&H Ld



What about this one? Would it be included in the list?



Have a Good One,

Skilo54

A/Ld - 10/7,7 - if the letters are 5mm high - is from either Addressograph Ltd, London NW10 or Aerators Ltd - or if the letters are 4.5mm high - Aquascutum Ltd, 100 Regent St. London W (but this last one was in use around 1925 which is probably too late for this stamp).

AE - 10,10 - Anglo-Egyptian Bank Ltd

Hi Rodney, Why do you call the G F Redfern & Co. perfin an official perfin?

I see that G F Redfern & Co. merged with Baron & Warren to become Baron Warren Redfern:

Hi Nigel.

Because it is unknown to me whether it has been established
it has been attributed to the Patent Office or not.
It has been adjudged "official" until further notice.
Redfern may have been acting under royal licence?

Both sources of information is hearesay to me,
I can adjust later perhaps.

This is the Perfin Society's take on the puncture....
