Possibly, a great illustration of how confusing Perfins can be,
I recently read ECHO to be 2CHO due to blunt puncturing pins.

In your case, 2 x "H" is possibly incorrect
I reckon it is a large "H" with "I" in the middle
IH = International Harvester ?


Canadian example

Nice block Skilo! You regularly find really nice items.

I believe your joined "HH" perfin is from the Commercial Union Assurance Company, Hand in Hand Club.

This is the 25 pin verison; there is also a similar 16 pin version.

It's fscinating to see it in a block with the various missing hole errors.

I agree rod222, perfins can be really confusing, but I am really starting to like them. I would like to be able to go through all my GB Kings and seperate the perfins to create a stand alone GB 4 Kings Perfin Collection. The big hang up with this plan is time, I don't have too much available these days. (totally not complaining, happy to be busy!)

I think I have a copy or two of those Canadian perfins as the design seems familiar, thanks for the information!

Thanks for the kind words Nigel, I appreciate it! This one came from a blurry pic listing, sometimes they turn out for the better!I also never scan the crapola that comes my way, so you are only seeing one side of the coin!

Great information once again Nigel, super! I learned something new today too! Thanks!

I am also glad you noticed the missing punctures, there is no impression, so the pins were missing from these ones! Along with that there are a few interesting print flaws on the block that I will have to check into!

Have a great Weekend folks,

Skilo54

Please don't Rod! You are the cornerstone of this thread, the King leading his Knights in a charge on the castle!



Have a good one,

This is a Victorian-era perfin that isn't listed in the 'Simplified Catalogue of the Perfins of Great Britain.' It's very hard to read, perhaps because it was a botched job. I'd reconstruct it thus:

Ox St W & Co.

I think this means 'Oxford Street W & Co.,' referring to the Oxford Street branch of a store.

Does anyone know what this one is or has seen it before?

I think it is " M & Co / Ox St " but otherwise I agree with your guess re Oxford Street.

Here it is, flipped.

I agree and would say that one is M&Co OxSt also. Nice to have a pair, always better than a single!

Have a great holidays folks!

All my best,

Skilo54

Thanks for the correct construction, Skilo54. It is 'M & Co. Ox St.,' which I find is listed in the 'Simplified Catalogue of the Perfins of Great Britain.' However, the company 'M & Co.' itself remains unidentified.

Yes, it was very nice to find a pair. The stamp itself is SG 209.

Happy New Year to you too, Nigel.

You are a legend
Now you have put your Perfin book away,
time to dig it out again

I cannot believe we have missed "E&S" which seems to be
multiplying in my shoebox, also "BG" on Machins.

Off topic - one of my favourite hippy dippy albums from the early '70s is 666 by a Greek group called Aphrodite's Child. Before Vangelis had his Chariots of Fire superfame and before Demis Roussos became the male Nana Mouskouri, they were together in a Greek pop group based out of Paris (they were trying to get to London but got kicked out at the border, apparently). They had some pop single hits and before breaking up they had a meltdown and got all strange and recorded that 666 album. It's filled with biblical references, including your cartoon of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse ("the leading horse is white, the second horse is red, the third one is a black, the last one is a green").

Yes, it would Bas,
no problem with fugitive ink with that stamp, (cold water only)
but you may want to use a soft haired small artist's paintbrush
just moist and tease the hinge off without soaking the entire piece.
