Is that A.B or AB? How tall are the letters?

Hi ROd,

The only ID with A and B having 10 and 13 pins in my catalogue is for Allen Brothers & Co. Ltd. London EC which has the letters A over B. i.e. A/B in the usual notation. This is known used in the period 1905 to 1925.

In case you have a blind pin, amongst the other horizontal AB IDs there is one with 10 & 14 pins for Allison Bros, London EC.

Thank you gentlemen,
I presumed the AB would be an easy solve. (image not required) I was wrong again.
Here is the hex postmark (duplex)

Unable to measure, stamp is in a stock book somewhere.
I'll go with Kobo's A van den bok (is there a puncture between A and B ?)
(thought bubble) I wonder is Threadneedle st, near Covent garden? (Hmmmm 2 miles)

Hi Rod, The proportions of the stamp indicate to me that the letters are certainly not 7mm high so allied to the lack of a full stop between the A and the B I can only conclude that this is not the Adrian Van Den Bok perfin. I suspect it is an as yet unidentified one, many QV & KEVII perfins remain unidentified. Although I don't have the latest GB Perfin Society Illustrated catalogues I do have the Tomkins v10 (latest) enhanced by GBPS updates to date so I am pretty much up to date on published identities.

With respect,
I care to disagree with your assumption.

(A nice piece. Defective punch + inverted letter L.)

The stamps are often folded during puncturing process, giving them different formats
when unfolded.
I'd suggest this is just a normal KC / L




Here are 4 "stamps" I have perfinned KC / L with a belt punch
4 stamps folded, then punctured.
Your result is the stamp in top left

Here's 3 I would like help with. Went though the post and if I missed them sorry.
Stamp #1 I think it's EWCB. The C has a diagonal line through it


Stamp #2



Stamp #3 This one looks like it had a broken pin in the last H. Unless it's not a H. Pretty sure it's suppose to be HUTH.



Thanks for any and all info.
